LEARNING OBJECTIVES Be enthusiastic about the course when you leave. Describe what it means that biology is hierarchical. Distinguish among the following: evolution (as generally  defined in this course), evolution by natural selection (5  part-definition), and how evolution is measured in  populations. Explain why we are studying biology from the perspective  of the organism. Recreate, with notes closed, the results of Endler’s  experiment on natural selection in guppies. Name the 5 big questions we will consider this semester  and explain how these were addressed in class today. Apply your understanding of natural selection to  scenarios that are new to you. Analyze data (like the  Endler data) that are new to you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
