The University of Oklahoma Biological Station (UOBS) was founded in 1949 and is a permanent, year-round field station located on the north shore of Lake Texoma (Oklahoma-Texas border), approximately 2 hours south of the main campus in Norman. The Station’s primary objective is to promote research and education in ecology, evolutionary biology and field biology. The facilities are open to scientists and graduate students world-wide for research and study. This is the first university-affiliated research facility to be established on a man-made lake.
The 2009 Summer Session marks the 60th year since the founding of the University of Oklahoma Biological Station on Lake Texoma. Students continue to come to UOBS to experience a truly unique opportunity in field-based study while earning three hours of upper-division or graduate level lecture/lab credit during one or both of the Summer Sessions.
UOBS will host seven field-oriented courses, a lab-based molecular course and Senior Capstone course during its Summer Session 2009. These courses encompass the following areas: aquatic plants, ecology, forensic entomology, herpetology, mammalogy, molecular methods, stream ecology and wildlife conservation.
