Biology of the Reptiles

Biology of the Reptiles

Snakes, lizards, turtles, and others comprise one of the most fascinating groups of vertebrates — the reptiles. There is hardly a group which inspires as much wonder, awe, and fear as this one. This course provides an exploration into reptiles beginning with how they arose on earth, and then discussing what they have been up to since they got here. Global biodiversity will be discussed in detail, exploring the major groups and their relationships to each other. The anatomy and physiology will be explored, as well as the ecological role of reptiles in keeping our environments healthy.

This course is offered at Agnes Scott College, through the Continuing Education Program, and is therefore open to anyone wishing to take the course. The course is intended for adults (18+), so please contact the instructor before registering anyone under 18 years of age.
