BIOL 455 - Animal Behavior


Class Hours: 3
Lab/Discussion: 0
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: Not open to students who have fewer than 60 credits
Offers a comparative and integrative overview of how and why animals as diverse as insects and humans behave the way that they do, linking behaviors to the brain, genes, and hormones, as well as to the surrounding ecological and social environments. Demonstrates how researchers use scientific logic to study the underlying mechanisms and evolutionary bases of behavior, with emphasis on how evolutionary theory unifies the various subdisciplines within animal behavior.
