BIOL 280 - Evolutionary Biology

Description
It has been famously stated that "nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of [the content of this course]." Mechanisms of evolution will be used to understand the diversity of life, including speciation, adaptation, and extinction. The evolutionary process will be applied to interesting and unusual observations to explain, for example, the basis of conflict, cooperation, mate choice, aging, disease, and why perfect phenotypes are impossible and why detrimental mutations persist. Three one-hour lectures and one two-hour laboratory period per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 155
