MARB 466: Evolutionary Biology

3 credits Spring Only

A conceptual examination of evolutionary theory, not a survey of specific organismal evolutions. Evidence for the abiotic origin of life is presented, followed by a discussion of micro-evolutionary (including drift and natural selections) and macro-evolutionary (including evolutionary trends) mechanisms. The course concludes with application of these concepts to human evolution.

Prerequisites: BIOL 112. MARB 301 recommended. Junior or senior classification or approval of instructor.
