ZOOL 833 (01) - Behavioral Ecology

Behavioral Ecology

Credits: 4.0
Term: Spring 2021 - Full Term (02/01/2021 - 05/11/2021)
Class Size:   3  
CRN: 55889
Behavioral ecology is the evolution of animal behavior played out on the stage of ecology--why might a certain behavior be adaptive in a certain context? In this course, we will pursue in-depth, high-level explorations of the central topics of animal behavior, all through the lens of evolution. We will also focus heavily on improving reading, writing, and presentation skills.

ZOOL 836 (1SY) - Genes and Behavior

Genes and Behavior

Course Delivery Method: Scheduled meeting time, Online (no campus visits), EUNH
Credits: 4.0
Term: Spring 2021 - Full Term (02/01/2021 - 05/11/2021)
Class Size:   10  
CRN: 56310
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 613 or equivalent.

ZOOL 877 (1SY) - Neuroethology: The Neural Basis of Animal Behavior

Neuroethology

Course Delivery Method: Scheduled meeting time, Online (no campus visits), EUNH
Credits: 4.0
Term: Spring 2021 - Full Term (02/01/2021 - 05/11/2021)
Class Size:   5  
CRN: 57357
Students taking this course will discover how some of the most remarkable behavioral adaptations in animals can be understood by examining specialized sensory systems and neural circuits. By exploring the complex interactions between animal behavior, neural systems, evolutionary relationships, anatomy, physiology and ecology, students will be better equipped to understand the neural basis of behavior. A culminating writing project will help sharpen students' scientific writing skills, and the ability to understand the primary neuroethology literature. Prereq: BIOL 411 and BIOL 412, or permission. Physiology (ZOOL 625), or another introductory neurobiology course, also desirable.
