BIO 108 - Topic: Diversity: Evolutionary Perspective (1)

What is diversity and why should you care? This course is designed to encourage students to read, discuss, and think about diversity-from a biological perspective. We will examine the diversity of life and life histories. Students will learn about diverse patterns of reproduction (sexual and asexual), gender, and interactions among predators, prey, and parasites within biological communities – including human populations. We will compare patterns from an evolutionary perspective and discuss implications. Recommended for non-science majors. This course is not open to students who have completed any 200-level biology course.
