CRN: 10564
Biological evolution is the changes within populations of organisms that extend beyond the lifetime of individuals. Darwin's mechanism of evolution by natural selection, and other evolutionary forces, explain the diverse adaptations of organisms to different environments. Topics include principles of heredity, sources and maintenance of variation, adaptation, speciation, classification, development, the history of life and the earth, and current controversies. Prereq: BIOL 411 and BIOL 412 or equivalent. Writing intensive.

ZOOL 726 (01) - Conservation Behavior

Credits: 4.0

Class Size:   25  
CRN: 14139
Conservation biology is well established as a crucial bridge between basic biology and resource management. Recently, biologists have begun to recognize the importance of the link between conservation and animal behavior. Management strategies can have very real impacts on the behavior of animals; likewise, animal behavior (in captivity and the wild) should inform our approach to conservation in a variety of contexts. This interdisciplinary course explores the causes and consequences of this relationship. Prereq: at least one of the following ZOOL 713, NR 650, or permission. Writing intensive.
(ZOOL 726) Prerequisite of either ZOOL 613 Animal Behavior (and/or) NR 650 Principles of Conservation Biology.

ZOOL 736 (01) - Genes and Behavior

Credits: 4.0
Term: Fall 2017 - Full Term (08/28/2017 - 12/08/2017)
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 16470
Genes and behavior examines the genetic underpinnings of animal behavior, and how behavior evolves on a genetic level. The course primarily relies on readings from the primary literature, using examples from laboratory model organisms, animals in their natural habitats, and humans. Topics include aggressiveness, social behavior, personality, parental care, communication, mating behavior, novelty seeking behavior, and foraging. This interdisciplinary course examines these behaviors at multiple levels, including genomics, population genetics, molecular genetics, epigenetics, endocrinology, and neurobiology. Prereq: GEN 604 and ZOOL 713 or equivalent.
