SA 3124 - Animal Behavior

An introduction to the analysis of animal behavior, emphasizing an evolutionary approach. Animal behavior is investigated, through both the ecological processes that have driven the evolution of behavior and the physiological mechanisms that allow behaviors to be performed. A major objective of the laboratory will be to foster a strong sense of how science proceeds. Students are encouraged to ask their own questions and design their own experiments, and will work in groups to determine goals, set predictions, create appropriate tests, and analyze results.

Prerequisite(s): Required:  BY 1116 - Biological Science I  and BY 1217 - Biological Science II . Recommended: BY 2108 - Ecology .
