The mechanisms of evolutionary change, from genes to societies, will be examined in this course and will draw on data and examples from plants and invertebrate and vertebrate animals. How natural selection interacts with genetic and population processes to make organisms adapted to their environment and to create biological diversity is an important component. An exploration of higher-level processes in evolution including considerations of mechanisms of speciation, extinction, adaptive radiation, and phylogenetics will be conducted.
