The main goal of this course is to help students understand the nature of science and how to evaluate the quality of science. Our focus is evolutionary biology, and specifically its role in helping us understand the biology of sex (or sometimes lack of sex) in the lives of a wide scope of diverse organisms. Among the topics examined are developmental biology, endocrine systems, sexual adaptation, and the evolutionary costs and benefits of sex. We examine a number of facts and fallacies about sex, including aspects of human sexual biology.
