Course Description

75-355 Human Ecology W(3-0)

This course will examine the ecological and evolutionary correlates of human population biology and behaviour. General principles from ecology and evolutionary biology will first be discussed; then how these principles have been used to develop models for the evolution of human social behaviour and understanding adaptive strategies among modern subsistence-level populations. Particular attention will be given to current ecological problems (e.g., loss of biodiversity) and their implications for the health and survival of modern human populations. (Offered in odd-numbered years.)

Prerequisites: 75-208.
