Animal Behavior: Evolution, Ecology & Social Behavior

BIOL301

Description

Animal behavior is an exciting and fascinating scientific discipline. In this course, students will study why animals behave as they do. Students will also have to discard many of their former ideas about animal behavior. Students will discover that most species do not see, hear, smell, or experience the world as we do. Animal behavior is the scientific study of everything animals do, whether the animals are single-celled organisms, invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, or mammals. In this course, you will investigate the relationships between animals and their physical environment as well as between other organisms, and you will study how animals find and defend resources, avoid predators, choose mates and reproduce, and care for their young.
