An introduction to evolutionary theory explaining biological unity and diversity, from pre-Darwinian ideas to current issues in evolutionary biology. Theoretical and empirical studies are integrated to elucidate evolutionary processes and outcomes. Upon course completion, students will be able to summarize the evidence supporting evolutionary theory and its historical development, describe mechanisms of evolutionary change above and below the species level, and explain the evolution of common life histories and behaviours.
