Insect Ecology (BIEB 128) syllabus and general information Fall quarter 2010 INSECT ECOLOGY. 4 units. BIEB 128 begins with a survey of insect diversity followed by lectures on arthropod systematics and the morphology, physiology, and development of insects. The second part of the course addresses basic topics including the evolution of insect mating strategies, life history variation, parasitoids, plant-insect interactions, mimicry, sociality, and population dynamics (including outbreaks). The final part of the course covers a series of applied topics: insect invasions, the pollination crisis, insect-borne diseases, pest management, biological control, and conservation. BILD 3 is a prerequisite for this course.
