BIOL368: Ecology and Evolution
Learn how ecological interactions drive evolution, how species can be understood as products of ongoing evolution, and explore some big questions about the processes that shape community structure and dynamics; ecosystem function; and the global distribution of biodiversity. Students also learn some essential skills for a science career. These include designing and carrying out simple experiments; communicating results to others; critiquing ideas and methods; applying existing ideas and methods to novel problems. There is a two hour lecture and a two hour practical most weeks, as well as a one day field trip. Each student also designs and carries out a simple experiment, with guidance from us.
