Welcome to the blog for eemb40 - the Ecology of Disease - for summer session 2008. It will also serve as a class website and you will find links to lectures etc on a box at the top right imaginatively called 'links'.
You are all welcome, and encouraged to post here. To do that all you need to do is to send me an e-mail saying just that. I will then add your address and google will send you an invitation to be an author. Just follow the simple instructions and away you go.
Postings should be relevant to the class but the blog is specifically designed to be a place where you don't need to worry about how relevant your post is. (I give you 'Basket full of puppies' as an example). I will be posting lots of things that I take out of lecture (for time purposes) but that some of you may find interesting. By putting it here you can look at it at your leisure and you know it won't be on the exam.
I have left all the posts up from last time the class ran, actually the very first time the class ran, in Winter 2008. You may wish to peruse these at your leisure, I think there are over 100 posts in total. Just scroll down and click on 'older posts' when you get to the bottom. I wouldn't read them all, well not in one sitting anyway, but scanning them will give you a good idea of the sorts of things you should post.
