Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology
Undergraduate and Graduate Lecture
Tu Th 11:40AM-12:55PM
This course explores human adaptation from a biological, ecological and evolutionary perspective. From our earliest hominin ancestors in Africa to our own species' subsequent dispersal throughout the world, our lineage has encountered innumerable environmental pressures. Using morphological, physiological and behavioral/cultural evidence, we will examine the responses to these pressures that helped shape our unique lineage and allowed it to adapt to a diverse array of environments.
Prerequisites: EEEB W1010 Human Species or ANTH V1007 Origins of Human Society or the instructor's permission.
