BIOL 041. Ecology, Evolution and Development


As we venture into the unknowns of human-induced environmental change, there is great urgency to understand the interplay between our environment and animal development.  Ecosystems rely on precise environmental cues to maintain their equilibrium and the reproduction, embryogenesis, and speciation of many organisms is influenced by their environment.  In this course we well discuss the plasticity of natural systems, the links between epigenetics and phenotype, and delve into the role of the environment in evolution and development.
