BLY 303 Ecology and Evolution

Course Description: The ecology section will emphasize biotic interactions within and among species, populations, and ecosystems as well as classic principles of ecology. The evolutionary section will focus on the evidence for evolution, history of evolutionary thought, and cover the major factors influencing evolutionary change. Where possible, principles of evolution and ecology will be integrated.

BLY470 Herpetology

Course Description: The goal of this course is to provide an introduction on the study of amphibians and reptiles (herpetology). This course will focus on the systematics, natural history, biogeography, ecology, physiology, and conservation of herpetofauna. One of the objectives of this course is also to learn and identify representative specimens during the laboratory class.

BLY490.10X Vertebrate Form and Function

Course Description: This course will focus on the comparative anatomical evolution of vertebrates. Anatomical features will be analyzed in the light of their adaptation and ecological and physiological performance.
