BIOL 028 - Macroevolution

Description
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.
