Description
Meets with BIOL 5346. Natural History of the Colorado Plateau (BIOL 5345) is an intensive and broad biology course focused on the natural history and environmental biology of southeastern Utah.

Graduate students and undergraduates in advanced standing in Biology are invited to participate and will receive credit for this course. Students will interact directly with Geologists, Botanists, Zoologists, Ecologists, and Conservation Biologists.
