EEB 390: EVOLUTION
EEB 390 is a lecture and discussion course that covers the fundamentals of evolutionary biology. It includes a historical survey of the development of evolutionary theory, phylogenetics, natural selection, population genetics, molecular evolution, genomics, and macroevolution. This course teaches how scientists study evolution in both nature and the lab, as well as how to read, assess, and discuss published research, especially high visibility work relevant to current events in the news.
EEB 450: BIOLOGY OF AMPHIBIANS
EEB 450 is a biodiversity survey course that integrates lecture, lab, and field-based study of amphibians and reptiles, with special focus on the local diversity of Michigan. This course teaches both contemporary and deep-time understanding of the evolution and ecology of global herpetofauna, promoting “practical herpetology” skills through both specimen-based inquiry and connections to current research with game-based exploration and 3D digital morphology.
