Familiarity with Mendelian genetics, basic molecular biology, and high-school algebra. Text : Charlesworth, B. and D. Charlesworth, 2003. Evolution: A Very Short Introduction . Oxford University Press. Also: Darwin, C., 1859. The Origin of Species , First Ed. Bantam Press. NOTE: the C&C book IS "very short" (~130 pages). I **HIGHLY** recommend that upon purchasing the textbook at the beginning of the semester you sit down and read it from cover to cover. That way (most of) the lecture material will be familiar when you encounter it and you can re-read the relevant material in the text as necessary. Discussion Sections : The "lab" section of the class will consist of discussion sections. Each week the class will read two chapters from The Origin of Species . Groups consisting of two or three students will lead the discussion, which will be moderated by the teaching assistants. Grading of the discussion section will be based on class participation, both in leading the discussion and in participating in discussions led by others. Material from the Origin will appear on the midterm and/or final exams. Homework Assignments
