Data. Cultures. Media. For biologists, these words have different meanings, but here’s a hint – you’ll learn them in the lab while you’re working on student research projects. And you’ll get to stretch your legs, too – like on the native prairie of Tandy Hills, where much of our conservation biology class takes place.
