Fall 2006 BIO 111L Jansen Biodiversity Highlights Paper One of the three things I found interesting on our field trip was various things inside the bottom part of the Biotrek building. Before I go on, I’ve seen that building on campus before, but never knew what was inside it or that it was even open to the general public.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
