Page Topics of this course by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Nov 01, 2006 04:38 AM
Why do most higher organisms reproduce sexually? Why be diploid rather than haploid? Why should there be separate sexes? What factors affect mate choice? How does ecology influence the breeding system? Such questions are the focus of much current research in evolutionary biology. In this course, we will examine explanations for the diversity of breeding systems that we see around us. The course is organized into the following modules.
