Professional Interests

As an organismal biologist, I have done research on host-parasite interactions, poultry toxicology, and poultry nutrition.  More recently, my focus has been laboratory curriculum for introductory courses, both biology majors and non-science majors.  I am interested in how students learn/work together in small groups, especially using hands-on investigative techniques.

J-Term 2015 Courses
Course - Section Title Days Time Location
BIOL 209 - 52 Biology of Sustainability/Lab - T W R - - - 1300 - 1600 OWS 264
CRN: 10194 0 Credit Hours Instructor: Doreen J. Schroeder Influences of humans on the global environment has reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dyanmics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: C- or better in BIOL 208
