Patricia Clark

Lecturer, Biology

Current Research

My research background is in ecology and evolutionary biology focusing on life history strategies, specifically reproductive patterns of turtles. I also participate in the Indiana Department of Natural Resources program of locating and identifying frog populations in south-central Indiana. Most recently, I have been working with the Morgan and Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation Districts on a watershed quality project.  I am also interested in educational research, especially topics dealing with development and expansion of student learning styles, skills, and sophistication.  I am currently a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) Curriculum and Instruction Committee working on standardized Anatomy and Physiology Learning Outcomes.

My current teaching responsibilities include teaching Human Physiology (N261), Biology of Women (N200), Principles of Ecology and Evolution Laboratory (K342), and Biology Capstone (K490).

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy a wide variety of outdoor sports and activities.
