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.
