BIO 577 - Ecomorphology Credits: 3


Intended for students interested in a holistic approach to biology and experimental research. Reviews the morphological adaptations of animals with emphasis on vertebrates. The functional and behavioral aspects of these adaptations are discussed in the context of the evolutionary and ecological relationships of key taxa. Students are expected to apply their academic background to research, deliver, and discuss the morphological traits enhancing animal's biological fitness. Ramifications of Ecological Morphology (i.e., molecular biology, genetics, physiology, systematics, philosophy) could be also considered. Course is a combination of lectures, student presentations, and discussions of current scientific literature.

Prerequisite(s): BIO 363 or BIO 370 or permission of instructor.
