BIOL_SCI 342-CN : Evolutionary Processes


"Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution" - Theodosius Dobzhansky

Evolution is a central unifying biological discipline since it is within an evolutionary framework that the rest of biology is understood. An understanding of evolution is key to understanding the origin and maintenance of the diversity of life on Earth. This course reviews the dynamics of genetic variation in populations through evidence from natural history, experimentation, and theory. Topics include: natural selection, genetic drift, inbreeding, mutation, and geographic structure of populations, and will be reinforced through examination and discussion of primary literature. Prerequisites: BIOL SCI 215 and BIOL SCI 219, or BIOL SCI 201 and BIOL SCI 202.
