Crustacean Biology (3 weeks; June 30 - July 18)
Instructor: Dr. Greg Jensen (U of Washington)
Cross dressing. Sex change. Chastity belts. Crustaceans were doing all this and more, long before humans ever appeared. Come learn all about this fascinating group in a setting where you can study them up close in their natural habitat and in the lab. Crustaceans are one of the most diverse groups of animals on earth in terms of species, morphology, behavior, and ecology. Discover their remarkable adaptations and strategies for feeding, reproducing, and evading predators. You'll never look at a crab or shrimp dinner in quite the same way again!
