Travel to the Upper Peninsula in Michigan and Ontario, Canada, for a field-based experience on
the coevolution of life and earth over long geological time scales where one of the world’s best
rock records for these events is readily accessible.
The course format includes on-campus meetings followed by a seven-day field trip. The field
experience is on the coevolution of life and earth over long geological time scales
(astrobiology). Students will observe, discuss, and analyze the geological record of planetary-
scale glacial-interglacial events in relation to evolutionary innovations in life, climate change,
microbial ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles.
Students will register for BIO 3343: Earth and Life Coevolution (2 credits), taught by Dr. Fabia U.
Battistuzzi. The course counts as a lab credit for Biology majors.
Program costs include travel from Oakland University, accommodation, all educational activities
and many meals.
