About the Course

This course presents the principles of evolution, ecology, and behavior for students beginning their study of biology and of the environment. It discusses major ideas and results in a manner accessible to all Yale College undergraduates. Recent advances have energized these fields with results that have implications well beyond their boundaries: ideas, mechanisms, and processes that should form part of the toolkit of all biologists and educated citizens. view class sessions >>



Course Structure:

This Yale College course, taught on campus three times per week for 50 minutes, was recorded for Open Yale Courses in Spring 2009.

About Professor Stephen C. Stearns


Stephen C. Stearns is the Edward P. Bass Professor of Ecology andEvolutionary Biology and specializes in life history evolution andevolutionary medicine. He was educated at Yale, the University ofWisconsin, and the University of British Columbia. His booksinclude Evolution, an Introduction; Watching from the Edge ofExtinction; and The Evolution of Life Histories, and he is the editor ofEvolution in Health and Disease and The Evolution of Sex and ItsConsequences.

Syllabus

Professor:

Stephen C. Stearns, Edward P. Bass Professor of Ecology andEvolutionary Biology, Yale University



Description:

This course presents the principles of evolution, ecology, and behavior for students beginning their study of biology and of the environment. It discusses major ideas and results in a manner accessible to all Yale College undergraduates. Recent advances have energized these fields with results that have implications well beyond their boundaries: ideas, mechanisms, and processes that should form part of the toolkit of all biologists and educated citizens.

Stearns, Stephen C. and Rolf Hoekstra. Evolution: An Introduction, 2nd ed. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005.



Requirements:

There are two midterms and a paper. The sections are Writing Intensive and require writing exercises culminating in one 15-20 page review paper or research proposal in which you utilize readings from the original scientific literature to address a question that you pose. The course grade consists of 25% from each midterm and 50% from the essay/section grade.

Special feature: The course is designed to elicit your own, original questions about evolution, ecology, and behavior through interactions with a website featuring video and still images from the Galapagos and issues and questions posed by recent papers from the primary literature. Your writing project and your take-home final will address questions you posed yourself, then refined in response to feedback from your TF.

You may view the Galapagos site at http://cmi2.yale.edu/galapagos_public



Grading:

Midterm examination 1: 25%
Midterm examination 2: 25%
Paper: 50%
