BT101 : Ecology, Biodiversity & Evolution-I

Course Overview

Course Synopsis

The Course Ecology, Biodiversity & Evolution (BT101) will give you a broad introduction to ecology, evolution or systematic research. The course covers themes that range from the biology of single organisms to bio geographical patterns, and you can immerse yourself in both theoretical and applied research.

Course Learning Outcomes

To describe the fundamental processes that cause or prevent adaptive evolution, speciation and extinction.

  • To describe the basic methods that are used to reconstruct the evolutionary histories of, and relationships among, groups of organisms. Based on evolutionary theory, predict how differences in population size, natural selection and gene flow will affect genetic variation and future adaptability of populations. Apply knowledge of evolution to the solution of problems facing the human population and to the preservation of biodiversity
