Spring 2015 Courses
Course - Section Title Days Time Location
BIOL 330 - 01 Animal Behavior M - W - F - - 1215 - 1320 OSS 127
CRN: 21104 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Sarah A. Heimovics The study of animal behavior at multiple levels connecting neural, hormonal, and genetic mechanisms of behavior to an evolutionary perspective. The adaptive value of behaviors such as display, habitat selection, foraging pattern, and mating system is examined. Theoretical analysis of sexual selection and the evolution of cooperation and altruism are considered. Laboratory work emphasizes the measurement and analysis of animal behavior under natural conditions. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: A minimum grad of C- in BIOL 209; STAT 220 or MATH 303 recommended.

CRN: 23068 Instructor: German J. Pliego Hernandez, Sarah A. Heimovics Students will work individually with the instructor to identify a statistical research topic of current interest or to identify a real practical problem, for which statistics can be used to produce a feasible solution. State and local governments, companies, businesses, TV channels, or even faculty doing research should be the natural source of real practical problems to be solved. For either the research or the practical problem, the final outcome should be a report with publication potential.
