BIOL 364 - Population Biology

Covers current issues in population biology, and draws from the fields of population genetics, evolutionary ecology, community ecology, and biogeography. Students learn the tools of evolutionary genetics, and read original literature for class discussion. Specific course topics include an in-depth study of population and quantitative genetics as well as special investigations of the evolution of parasite virulence, the maintenance of sexual reproduction, the evolution of cooperative behavior, and the evolution of senescence. Students are required to lead class critiques of the literature, and perform an independent research project as an integral part of the course.
