Natural History of Florida Invertebrates

Leader: Dr. Thomas Bultman

A student examines a spider during the Florida May Term

This May term is a course to acquaint students with invertebrate animals in their natural environment. Emphasis of study is on marine invertebrates and terrestrial arthropods. About 12 days are spent at selected ecological habitats in northern Florida, including coastal beach and marsh, palmetto scrub, and upland forest. Students will camp in tents as well as stay in cabins. Students will learn taxonomic classification, taxonomic names of major groups, and their ecology and behavior, as well as general ecology of the Atlantic coast. Offered every few years in May. For further information contact Dr. Thomas L. Bultman, bultmant@hope.edu.
