This is a course designed to use flowers, the reproductive structure, as the focus to understand different aspects of the ecology and evolution of flowering plants. Topics discussed in this highly interactive course include: floral structures, floral development, function of floral parts, self pollination, cross pollination, self incompatibility systems, pin-and-thrum systems, sex allocation theory, pollination syndromes, plant-pollinator coevolution and more. This course will be offered every spring semester

 

Plant Reproductive and Physiological Ecology - PBIO 8890/L

Lisa Donovan and I co-teach this graduate level course that aims at giving students in depth overview of plant reproductive biology and physiological ecology.  This course will be offered in the fall semester of odd years - it was last offered in fall 2017.  It has a discussion session (listed as 8890L).

 

Plant Population Biology Seminar - PBIO 8700

I teach this seminar course only periodically.  Topics of this course changes from year to year but generally fall in the area of Ecology and Evolution of Plant Reproduction.
