Instructor: James LaBonte, M.S.
Dates: Thursday-Friday, March 30-31, 2017
Almost 5,000 species of beetles are known to live in Oregon, including blind soil beetles, wood-boring beetles, dung beetles and fungi-eating beetles. Beetles are the predominant pollinators of some plants in Oregon. In this “Beetles 101” field course, students can expect to acquire general knowledge about species diversity, behaviors, ecological roles, and natural histories of the beetles found at and near the Institute. Although we’ll consider beetles in all accessible habitats, we’ll focus on those inhabiting leaf litter and soil. Field trips, lecture, labs and optional night collecting will give us plenty of opportunities to collect and observe diverse species.
