BIO 3160 - Animal Behavior

4 cr
This course examines the behavior of animals as they interact with each other and the environment.  Topics include anti-predator behavior, foraging behavior, territoriality, social interactions, communication, and migration.  The goal of the course is to learn to think critically about animal behavior by understanding behavior on both the proximate (genetics, development and response to external stimuli) and ultimate (evolutionary) levels.  In the laboratory, groups of students will design, carry out, and report on an independent research project.
Prerequisite: BIO 1121  and  BIO 1122  with grades of "C" or better.
