About Me


Dr. Throckmorton joined the Westminster Department of Biology in 1990.  She teaches Biostatistics and Experimental Design, Ecology, Field Biology, Freshwater Biology, Marine Biology, Introduction to GIS, the biology and environmental science capstone courses, and various introductory and non-majors courses. Her research focuses on two areas:   behavioral ecology of parasitic insects – how mate selection and host choice affect lifetime fitness – and the antimicrobial and insecticidal properties of compounds derived from plants.  She is also a member of the Sustainability Committee and the Environmental Science Committee which coordinates the environmental science major.
