BIO 324: Interpreting Ecological Data

Experimental design and the theory behind and appropriate use of parametric statistics including: student t-test; analysis of variance; linear regression and some variations including logistic regression and multiple regression; analysis of covariance; chi-squared similarity test; testing the independence of multiple tests; Monte Carlo and bootstrapping methods. Students encouraged to use data from their own research. Course does not fulfill undergraduate statistics requirement. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 325: The Evolution of Body Size (GES 325)

Preference to graduate students and upper-division undergraduates in GES and Biology. The influence of organism size on evolutionary and ecological patterns and processes. Focus is on integration of theoretical principles, observations of living organisms, and data from the fossil record. What are the physiological and ecological correlates of body size? Is there an optimum size? Do organisms tend to evolve to larger size? Does productivity control the size distribution of consumers? Does size affect the likelihood of extinction or speciation? How does size scale from the genome to the phenotype? How is metabolic rate involved in evolution of body size? What is the influence of geographic area on maximum body size?

BIO 326: Foundations in Biogeography

Seminar. Focus on classic papers covering the global distribution and abundance of organisms through time. Topics include: phylogenetics, phylogeography, plate tectonics, island biogeography, climatic change, dispersal, vicariance, ecology of invasions, extinction, gradients, diversity, conservation and a history of the field.

BIO 342: Plant Biology Seminar

Topics announced at the beginning of each quarter. Current literature. May be repeated for credit. See http://carnegiedpb.stanford.edu/seminars/seminars.php.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 346: Advanced Seminar on Prokaryotic Molecular Biology

Enrollment limited to PhD students associated with departmental research groups in genetics or molecular biology.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

BIO 375: Field Ecology & Conservation

This course is based on question-driven research in the field, addressing both conceptual frameworks and methodological aspects of evolutionary ecology and conservation biology. It consists of faculty-led research projects and student independent projects. The field part takes place in a tropical rain forest research station in Mexico September 5-15, 2014. The field component is followed by sessions on campus, where the research data are analyzed, discussed and prepared as scientific papers. The training includes presentations of the papers in a mini-symposium organized as a professional meeting.

Instructors: Dirzo, R. (PI)

BIO 383: Seminar in Population Genetics

Literature review, research, and current problems in the theory and practice of population genetics and molecular evolution. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Feldman, M. (PI)

BIO 384: Theoretical Ecology

Recent and classical research papers in ecology, and presentation of work in progress by participants. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 1-3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 387: Hacking Consciousness: Consciousness, Cognition, and the Brain

Listen to renowned physicists, nutritionists, neuroscientists, etc. as they investigate the nature of consciousness as a field of all possibilities. We'll explore consciousness as the source not only of the human mind and its ability to experience, know, innovate... but also as the source of all structures and functions in creation, from fine particles to DNA to galaxies, in parallel with the scientific notion of a unified field, or superstring at the basis of the infinite diversity of time and space.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

BIO 390: Topics in Biology

Seminar. Topics in biology ranging from neurobiology to ecology.
Terms: Win | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit
Instructors: Simoni, R. (PI)
