BIOL 305 Spring 2013 Evolution (Q)

This course offers a critical analysis of contemporary concepts in evolution. We focus on the relation of evolutionary mechanisms (e.g., selection, drift, and migration) to long term evolutionary patterns (e.g., evolutionary innovations, origin of major groups, and the emergence of diversity). Topics include micro-evolutionary models, natural selection and adaptation, sexual selection, kin selection, co-evolution, speciation, and the inference of evolutionary history.
