Animal Biology 50B

This is one of four core courses in the Animal Biology major. ABI majors are students interested in the research that underlies our understanding of biology, and are required to complete their own practicum research project. Successful research involves many elements, but part of it is finding good ideas, grappling with where your own work fits in the larger context of biological science and understanding how design robust studies to examine testable questions. The primary goals of this course are to help students:

  • Learn about current topics that integrate ecology, evolution, behavior and conservation biology
  • Gain experience in reading and assessing ideas within the primary research literature
  • Develop a working sense of what determines strong research
  • Summarize ideas from primary literature and present them to peers in writing and oral formats
