During the summer of 1986, a course in natural history, developed and first taught at the 1985 summer session, will be offered at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory. The course focuses upon the major habitat types in Iowa: prairies, woodlands and wetlands. The objective of the course is to familiarize students with important species, community structure and function, and sampling techniques in each habitat. An experimental component asks students to carry out a research project. The course is taught by Dr. Paul Christiansen, Cornell College, and Dr. Richard Lampe, Buena Vista College, with help from Jean Prior from the Iowa Geological Survey.
