BIOL 60.01 Evolutionary Ecology

Theodosius Dobzhansky said "nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution." Evolutionary ecology explores the fundamental and diverse role of evolutionary process in the natural world. We will explore the importance of natural and sexual selection acting in natural communities on land and in the water. Lecture topics will include the evolution of life history variation, competition, predation, behavior, physiology, migration and dispersal, and molecular evolution. Because the course covers a wide range of topics, students should have a solid foundation in basic ecology and evolution prior to taking BIOL 60.01. Prerequisites required: One from the following: BIOL 21, 27, 28, 31, 32, 36, 38, 47, or 48.

SCI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
