BIO558 - Biological Basis of Human Evolution and Behavior

Description:  A exploration of biological theories of human evolution, properties,   and behavior. We build an understanding of evolution of complex organisms by natural selection, followed by the emergence of humans as a uniquiely complex species. Scientific hypothesis formation and testing using the extensive multidisciplinary empirical record of the 1.8 million years of human history is developed throughout. Implications of human evolutionary biology for contemporary social and sexual behavior are also investigated.
