ANTH 50.46 Macroevolution

Macroevolution focuses on the evolutionary process from the perspective of the species and through the lens of deep time. More specifically, it focuses on the issue of whether life is organized hierarchically, and if so, can selection occur at any/all of these other levels, in addition to the level of the organism. This course is especially well suited for discussion and question, as the definition of macroevolution, as well as its very existence, is under intense discussion by both microevolutionists and macroevolutionists alike. Topics covered include punctuated equilibrium, species-level selection, homology, and mass extinctions.



Degree Requirement Attributes


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.
