BIOL 105 - Evolution

Type of Course: Lecture, Laboratory, Discussion
An introduction to the mechanisms and patterns of evolutionary change during the earth’s history. 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.
