This is a list of courses that are available through the lab.
BIOL 448 -Mammalogy (Fall quarter only): This class will introduce you to the evolutionary patterns, ecology, behavior, physiology and taxonomy of mammals. We combine lectures, class discussions, group work and hands-on activities to explore these topics. We rely on a comparative, systems approach to understand the major evolutionary trends and the mechanisms maintaining the diversity in form and function in mammals. As a student, you will be expected to read from the textbook and the primary literature. At the end of the class, you should be able to explain major features in mammalian evolution, identify mammalian specimens at a general level, and predict food habits, locomotor mode and habitat from an examination of anatomy.
