Course Description How do studies of behavior in nature and the lab complement each other? For example, how does our knowledge of animal behavior in the wild shape the design, execution, and interpretation of studies of behavior in the laboratory? And what, in turn, do lab studies tell us about how animals experience their world and behave? What are the sources and mechanisms of diversity of behavior and how does behavior evolve at genetic, molecular, and neuronal levels? Readings will cover the work of classical ethologists, as well as modern literature. These readings will be presented and discussed in a seminar format.
