Animal behavior is a broad, integrative, field of study, combining
elements of natural history, evolution, genetics, development,
learning and cognition, ethology,sensory psychology and physiology,
life history strategies, behavioral and social ecology, and a little
anthropology and evolutionary psychology. The course will survey
methods, observations, experimental findings, models, and theories.
A required paper on a species chosen by each student will help
integrate these topics by relating them to a single species.
