BIOL 105 - Evolution


An introduction to the mechanisms and patterns of evolutionary change. Although this course will briefly survey the major evolutionary events that have occurred since life first evolved, the emphasis will be on mechanisms of evolutionary change (e.g. mutation, natural selection, genetic drift and gene flow) and resultant patterns (e.g. phylogenetic pattern, coevolution, stasis, adaptive radiation).

Prerequisites: BIOL 100 , BIOL 101  or BIOL 103 , and BIOL 102 , or permission.

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every year.
