The course covers the basics of ecology and evolution. It begins with an introduction, focused on how evolutionary processes form organisms and their adaptations, and moves on to the impact of the physical environment on patterns of species distribution, mechanisms that influence the temporal and spatial variation of populations, ecosystem processes, and ways in which humans are part of and affect biological systems.
