    The goal of this course is to learn why animals do the things they do, as well as which questions to ask when investigating animal behavior. Humans are animals too, and the concepts we cover in this class can also serve as tools for understanding human behavior. In this course we will examine how natural selection, learning and cultural transmission shape the natural behaviors of animals. We will seek to understand both the proximate mechanisms underlying behavior and ultimate evolutionary reasons for the existence of a behavior. Course material will be covered in both lectures and in discussions of research papers.

    BIOL 1272 - ANIMAL BEHAVIOR LABORATORY


    Minimum Credits: 1
    Maximum Credits: 1
    The study of animal behavior is the study of everything animals do, regardless of whether one is studying single celled organisms, invertebrates, fish, birds or mammals. Animal behavior can be rich and fascinating, with as much capacity for intrigue, deception, and strategizing as any soap opera. The goal of this class is to explore and become familiar with some of the methods used to study and understand development, adaptive function, evolution and physiological control of behavior of vertebrates and invertebrates. In addition, students will design their own animal behavior experiment that can be tested observationally. Intellectual skills to be emphasized include the interpretation of graphs and other data, the critical evolution of the primary literature (i.e. Research papers), the formulation of testable hypotheses, simple statistical analyses and writing of scientific reports.
