ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

(Lab Required) (Formerly ZOOL 3100, 022.310) An introduction to the study of animal behaviour including key concepts from the parent disciplines of ethology and comparative psychology, the genetic and physiological bases of behaviours, and evolutionary aspects introducing optimality and game theoretical models characteristic of modern behavioural ecology.
