Animal Behaviour - 03-55-323
Next Offered: Winter 2013

This course in Animal Behaviour will emphasize the link between organisms and their environment. The thrust of the course will be to understand why different species behave in different ways and why within species there may be individual differences in behaviour. The aim of the course is to derive a basic understanding of how animals have evolved behaviours that aid in survival and reproduction. (Prerequisites: 55-210, 55-211, 55-213)
