First POP-CURE Course Starts In The Fall [EBIO 1250]

  • University of Colorado, Boulder 1669 Euclid Avenue Boulder, CO 80309 USA (map)

Students who enroll in EBIO 1250, one of several introductory biology options offered to freshmen and transfer students by the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department, will have the opportunity to engage in authentic research on Boulder’s apple trees and support their community!

The first round of this course features three research branches that students can choose among: 1) Research on the urban ecology of apple trees including effects of urban heat islands on tree growth, 2) Investigations on the effect of the shifting climate on apple tree phenology (e.g, flowering and leaf drop) and physiology, or 3) Genetic explorations of the basis of fruit characteristics such as sweetness or bitterness.  Are you an incoming CU Boulder freshman or transfer student interested in enrolling?
