POPULATION BIOLOGY   [Archived Catalog]
2019-2020 Greensburg Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course focuses on ecological and evolutionary processes at the population level. We will learn how to represent ecological and evolutionary dynamics using increasingly realistic mathematical models. We will first explore population ecology including models of single populations, meta-populations, and interactions between species. We then shift to population and evolutionary genetics studying how the mechanisms of evolution interact with each other. Finally, we will study the explicit interaction between ecological and evolutionary processes that can occur over short timescales.
