Prerequisites: Must have a C- or better in BIO 110 , BIO 111 , and BIO 112 , or permission.
Questions concerning the behavior of individuals and populations are explored in a mechanistic and evolutionary context. The relationships of animal behavior studies to ecology, taxonomy, evolution, and genetics are investigated, as well as the anatomical and physiological basis of behavior. Upon successful completion of this course, students will develop an understanding of the behavior of animals in field and laboratory and will also become aware of the adaptive significance of behavior.
