B2076: The Evolution of Evolution in Splash! Spring 2012
Ever wondered what evolutionary biology is about? This course will provide a brief overview of the field, with a particular focus on major historical developments as the knowledge of the subject advanced. We will begin in pre-Darwinian times, discuss the impact of Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, and then race through the rise of Mendelian genetics, the modern evolutionary synthesis, and finish with a discussion on molecular evolution and the implications of new technology, such as next generation sequencing, on current research.

B2077: SchLEPing around: case studies in butterfly ecology and evolution in Splash! Spring 2012
Have you ever seen a monarch butterfly fly past and wonder where it’s going? Each fall, millions of monarchs undertake a spectacular, months-long journey to reach their overwintering grounds, where the monarchs aggregate together. We will discuss the science behind this amazing migration (including bits from the instructor’s own research on the topic), and also highlight some other case studies in butterfly ecology and evolution, such as mimicry and speciation in Heliconius butterflies. Basically, it’ll be a smattering of lepidopteran ecology and evolution!
