This course will introduce students to the amazing diversity of animals in our world. We will discuss how animals within this diversity manage to survive, function, reproduce, and behave in their natural environment. Meanwhile, we will explore interesting questions that scientists ask about animals. We ultimately want students to leave this course with

  1. an enhanced appreciation for the diversity of animals in our world,
  2. an understanding of how this diversity has arisen,
  3. an awareness of the effects of humans on animal diversity, and
  4. an understanding of how scientists ask and answer questions about animals.

Students will attend three lectures and one discussion section per week. Grades for the course will be based on three exams, participation in discussions, and the completion of class and discussion section activities.
