BIO 6410 - Behavioral Ecology

Credit Hour(s): 3
This course will focus on how and why animals behave the way they do. In particular, we will study how an individuals behavior contributes to its survival and reproductive success (i.e., why do particular behaviors evolve?) and how the environment influences optimal behavioral strategies (i.e., what is the ecological basis of behavior?). This course has a large theoretical component, but we will also examine some real behaviors as case studies.
Enrollment Restrictions: Must be enrolled in one of the following Levels: Graduate, Medical, Professional.
