BIO 380L Behavioral Biology Discussion

Companion course to BIO 380 explores course concepts in more detail. Laboratory exercises will investigate research methods in behavior, behavioral genetics, sensory systems and communication, animal motivation and personalities, optimal foraging, habitat preference, reproduction and mating systems, and parental care, using a range of live animal, video recordings, and simulations. In addition, scientific writing will be investigated through the preparation of a grant on a behavioral topic of the students choice. One weekend field trip to Lowry Park Zoo is required.
