Course Description Fall 1994

CCS 137                                        Animal Behavior
                                                       Ray Coppinger

What is an animal doing when it "behaves"? What motivates it to move? In this course we will explore the lives of animals as a biologist. Animals have a range of activities: they feed, they reproduce, and they spend much of their time protecting themselves from the environment. Did they evolve these behaviours through some genetic method as Darwin suggested or have they learned the techniques of living successful lives from their mother or perhaps careful observations of other animals? As scientists we will look in some detail at animal behavior and explore the methods that other scientists have used to try to answer thee questions.
