BIOL-S 318 is a four-credit, honors course in evolutionary biology that covers the topics of quantitative genetics, population genetics, life-history theory, evolution of sexual reproduction, sexual selection, mutation-selection balance, genetic load, evolution of social behavior, correlated responses to selection, speciation, macroevolution, molecular evolution, and phylogenetic reconstruction.
It is an integrated lecture/lab course that meets three times per week. It is also an intensive writing course. Students get individualized attention and direct feedback from the instructors on technical writing in biology. (Intensive writing courses at IU are restricted to 25 students.)
I will teach the course again in the fall semester of 2020.
