BIOS 2100 - Exploring Animal Behavior

Humans have always been interested in animal behavior. During our early history, much of that interest was based on practical need. Today studies of animal behavior help us understand our own behavior as well as our interactions with all other animals. Explore both how and why some animals migrate, live in groups, fight, have mating preferences, provide parental care, and communicate. Lectures will address some controversial issues in animal behavior, such as “Do animals have emotions?” Provides you with a new way of thinking about, observing, and interacting with the animals.
