This course will introduce the student to the field of animal behavior. Basic principles derived from natural selection and other evolutionary mechanisms, ecology, ethology, and development will be examined and used to explain how (proximate questions) and why (ultimate questions) animals behave as they do in particular situations. Many important biological activities such as foraging, communication, migration, predator-prey interactions, mating, and parental care will be considered. Includes one 3-hour lab per week.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 254; MATH/PSYC 140 or BUS 240.

Offered Spring 2019 and alternate Spring semesters.
