BIOL 313 - An Introducation To Ecology & Evolution - Fall 2011

Ecological processes and evolutionary principles that explain the origin, maintenance, and dynamics of biological diversity. Ecological interactions will be studied to understand the dynamics of populations and communities, and the evolution of traits. Mechanisms of genetic change of populations will be discussed and how these changes give rise to large-scale evolutionary patterns.
This course may not be repeated for credit.
