Animal Behavior (BIOL 348)

  • College: College of Arts and Sciences
  • Department: Biology
  • Credit Hours: 3
  • This course has a lecture with 3 hours.

In this course, we explore the diversity of animal behavior in order to understand how behavior is organized and controlled, how it develops, why it is performed, and why it takes a particular form. Natural selection is a major theme with emphasis on viewing behavior as a species attribute, following the approach of comparative ethology, and as an individual attribute, interpreting behavior to be a ""strategy"" that contributes to an organism's fitness. Prerequisites: BIOL 122 with a grade of C- or better. Typically Offered Spring only.
