BIOL 6 Dinosaurs

This course is designed for the non-major. The goal of this course is to teach the basic principles of science in general, and evolutionary biology in particular, using dinosaurs as exemplars.  We will focus largely on the evolutionary patterns and processes that underlie dinosaur biology, including their phylogeny, behavior, physiology and their extinction.  As dinosaurs will be placed within their proper biological and geological contexts, other covered topics include the fossil record and the notion of "deep" time, the construction of the tree of life, and mass extinctions. Open to all students without prerequisite. Offered in alternate years. BIOL 6 does not count for biology major or minor credit.

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.
