EPP 210 - Bugs: Bizarre, Beautiful, and Beneficial

3 Credit Hours
This course will introduce students to the diverse world of insects and the integral interactions between insects and humans. More than one million insect species have been described, with estimates ranging from 10 to 30 million species yet to be discovered. Scientists estimate that there are about 250 million insects for every human on earth and they comprise about 10% of the earth’s weight and represent ca. 80 to 85% of all life on earth! Fortunately, only a small percentage of all insects cause us grief, anguish, pain, and misery. The majority of them may be classified as bizarre, beautiful, or beneficial! This course will focus on the role of insects in our world, with an emphasis on their beneficial contributions to our quality of life.
