VCU Center for Environmental Studies Professor James Vonesh is teaming up with epidemiologist Brian Byrd of Eastern Carolina University to offer a new summer field course out of Highlands Biological Station in North Carolina on the community ecology of riverine rock pools. Fieldwork will involve characterizing the macroinvertebrate communities of rock pools along an elevational gradient with a particular focus on the distribution of native and non-native disease vectoring mosquito species. The course is developed with NSF ROA collaboration support.

The course runs from June 17 - 28, 2019.
