EEB 451 introduces students to the diversity of mammals. Through laboratory exercises (one four-hour laboratory period/week) and lectures, participants will have an opportunity to see and learn about species representing all of the major groups of mammals. We will review their evolutionary history; examine their adaptations and lifestyles; and discuss current research in ecology, behavior, zoogeography, and systematics. Two optional texts supplement the lectures.

Grades will be based on lecture and laboratory exams, participation in discussions, and two brief papers.

Optional textbook: 2000 Mammalogy. 4th edition. Vaughan, Ryan, Dzaplewski.
Also optional: Mammology: Adaptation, Diversity, Ecology. 3rd edition. Feldhamer, et. al. 2007.
