BIO 114E Principles of Evolution

This course is a basic introduction to the theory of evolution and to the discipline of evolutionary biology. Cpurse topics will, broadly, include the evidence for evolution, history of evolutionary theory, the nature of species and how they interact in ecological systems to drive evolutionary change, the means and outcomes of evolution, how evolutionary theory is applied in science and medicine, and societal reactions to the theory. There will be a focus on the genetic nature of evolution and how recent discoveries and technologies are modifying prior evolutionary concepts. Pre-requisites: An introductory college-level biology course is helpful but not essential.
