Module overview

Behavioural ecology considers the evolutionary pressures that shape behaviour. This module will explore animal behaviours from evolutionary biology and population ecological perspectives. Each week, lectures will consider a different behavioural ecology topic, to be discussed in more detail in accompanying weekly seminars. Throughout the module, students will keep an individual notebook/log/journal, sharing their notes and reflections with other students during seminars as part of group discussions to expand their personal learning network. Each student will write a research proposal for a behavioural ecology research project of their own devising, requiring them to consider the relevant background information, appropriate methodology and to budget the costs of their proposed project.
