4 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course a student will be able to:

  • Describe the unity and diversity of form and function across multiple lineages of life on Earth.
  • Analyze the evolution of organismal form and function according to physical and chemical constraints and the ecological structure of the environment.
  • Compare and contrast how disparate lineages evolve adaptations to common environmental challenges.
  • Explain how organisms shape the environment and influence macroevolutionary trends.
  • Interpret and use phylogenetic trees to infer the evolutionary history of lineages.
  • Apply scientific reasoning to interpret data and draw conclusions.
