Behavioral Ecology

Biology 315

Usual Description

Behavioral ecology is the study of how behavior (broadly defined) influences lifetime reproductive success of individuals. It is therefore deeply rooted in evolutionary theory, and considers the ways in which behavior may be adaptive. Topics will include life history strategies, optimal foraging and habitat selection, signaling and communication, sexual selection, and social organization and cooperation. Lectures, laboratories, and discussion sessions will primarily emphasize field studies and will illustrate observational, experimental, comparative, and modeling approaches. Field trips required.
