Organization, Regulations, and Courses 2017-18

EARS 72 Geobiology

This course will investigate the coevolution of life and other Earth systems (e.g. oceans and atmosphere). Concepts in geobiology are presented in the context of significant events in Earth's history. The course provides an introduction to molecular techniques (e.g. isotope analysis to genomics and proteomics) utilized to investigate significant events in Earth's history. The important geobiological processes and major events discussed in the course may include, for example, the formation of the solar system, the earliest records of life, evolution of photosynthesis and the oxygenation of Earth's environment, origin of animals at the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary, extinction of invertebrates at the Permian-Triassic boundary, and the Eocene- Paleocene thermal crisis to name a few.




CHEM 5 or permission of the instructor. EARS 31 or BIOL 16 recommended.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
