Behavioural Ecology

This course will explore some of behaviours exhibited by organisms (including plants, but focusing on animals) in order to meet their basic needs, such as acquiring nutrition, avoiding danger, and reproducing. We will discuss how and why these behaviours occur, investigating ecological, evolutionary, and mechanistic aspects. Topics covered will include neurobiological pathways, behavioural genetics, chemical ecology, learning, game theory, co-evolution, and social behaviours.
