ANZ 441 - Animal Behavior(WI)

3.00 Cr
In this class students will learn how scientists investigate and interpret the reason and the causes of animal behaviors. There are four general approaches to the study of animal behavior including: evolutionary, ontogenetic, proximate mechanisms, and functional consequences. Students will learn how to apply these different approaches to the study of both domestic and wild animals. The development of normal and abnormal behavior will be an important component of this course. Students will receive systematic instruction in writing through conducting a literature review. Students will gather, review, and synthesize pertinent literature to explain the underlying mechanism responsible for why and how an animal species behaves in a particular way. Students will serve as peer reviewers as well as authors for this assignment. Multiple drafts will culminate in one major paper at the end of the semester.
