This is the first post for Ecology 180, the notes blog for our undergraduate field ecology course at UC Davis.
This blog is something new that we’ll be doing this year. For each class meeting, one student will be in charge of taking notes to document the messy, beautiful process of science. My first hope is that this blog will be useful to those of us in the trenches, who are struggling to remember what we talked about during our last meeting. And my second hope is that this blog will be interesting to those of you are just curious about doing science in nature.
