Stanford Virtual Classroom: Fieldwork at Home

Professor Fukami teaches a field biology course designed to give students hands-on experience at Stanford’s Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. In a typical quarter, it is attended by 60-100 students, each visiting Jasper Ridge to observe and measure ecological samples of flower ecology and microbes. This quarter, the class will take advantage of the large datasets available from the previous 10 years of sample collecting.

“The data analysis [students] do this quarter, can be actual, authentic research because in research nowadays – in biology at least – the modern research involves a lot of large datasets and analysis of those.”
