This course emphasizes the fascinating behaviors that animals use to solve ecological problems. We have good theoretical reasons to expect male animals to try to mate with many females; do males do that, and if so, what behaviors lead to success? Predators searching for prey ought to abandon areas that seem to be unproductive; can we successfully predict what their "optimal giving-up time" is? Sibling animals fight with each other; after taking the course, you'll understand how natural selection produces these aggressive behaviors. Class time is split between lectures and ambitious, original research projects.
