Course Description

This course is an introduction to evolution, diversity, and ecology. Topics include natural selection and the patterns of evolutionary change in allele frequencies and speciation. The course will introduce the diversity of living organisms resulting from evolutionary processes. The course will explore how these organisms interact with each other and their physical environment, and the feedback of these interactions on evolution. Laboratory exercises complement lectures.
