Schedule

 

 

This is our schedule for the Fall 2017 semester.  Note that this is subject to change as activities are determined by how things are going along and student needs. I have also provided links to the relevant Tree of Life pages which indicate the phylogeny and provide other basic information and connections to other resources for each group; these links are just starting points. (Note the CC license on most of these pages).
