This is a graduate-level seminar on human reproductive ecology. We will read technical, scientific articles that assume a strong background in biology as well as evolutionary theory: Sample questions include: Why did menstruation and menopause evolve? Does menstrual synchrony exist? Does female sexuality change at the time of ovulation? What adaptations influence female fertility? What progress has been made in understanding male reproductive ecology? We will also explore diverse cultural practices that constrain female sexuality. Grading will be based on class participation and one paper. Permission of instructor is required for undergraduates.
