Expanded Course Description
In this course we will explore behaviors found in a variety of animals and try to understand some of the mechanisms behind them, how they develop, their evolutionary history, and what functions they might serve. Examples will be used to illustrate concepts in animal behavior and serve to develop an appreciation for the many interesting things that animals do to survive and reproduce. We will also examine the methods with which scientists study these behaviors. By doing this, you will better understand how science works and become comfortable evaluating scientific information, a skill required by all people whether or not they pursue a career in the sciences.

Students meet twice per week for 80 minutes in a large class setting and attend one required 50 minute discussion section each week which provide opportunities to question, debate, and cover in depth many of the topics presented in lecture. In addition, hands-on activities allow us to ask questions about animal behavior and design experiments to search for answers.
