BIO 312: Ethical Issues in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Focus is on ethical issues addressed in Donald Kennedy's Academic Duty and others of importance to academics and scientists in the fields of ecology, behavior, and evolutionary biology. Discussions led by faculty and outside guests. Satisfies ethics course requirement for ecology and evolutionary biology. Prerequisite: PhD student in the ecology and evolutionary biology or marine program, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

BIO 321: Ecological Genetics

Systematic exploration of (1) the types of questions that can be addressed by ecological genetics techniques (i.e., community genomics, genetic variation between species in the same ecosystem, resource use, landscape genetics, etc.); (2) laboratory techniques available; and (3) analyses and modeling best suited for ecological genetics questions. Analysis of specific research problems and efforts (now underway or planned for the near future) among seminar participants, and discussion of these efforts with group review of the relative merits of alternative approaches.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 1-3 | 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?
Terms: not given this year | Units: 2 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

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.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 2 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
