This unit is designed to teach the fundamentals of evolution with a strong emphasis on the ecological and functional causes of evolution. In a time of changing environments it is very important to understand the functional links between ecology and evolutionary processes because that helps us to predict responses to changing ecology and has spinoffs in other fields such as drug and pesticide resistance. The approach will be a mixture of important facts, concepts, and models.
