This course focuses on fundamental concepts and methods in ecological genetics. Topics covered include genetic diversity, natural selection, adaptation, reproductive isolation, hybridization and speciation.
Students are familiar with fundamental concepts in ecological genetics and with current scientific methods. They can propose strategies to study evolutionary processes in natural populations by combining their knowledge from different disciplines, including population and quantitative genetics, ecology and evolution.
Concepts and methods for the study of genetic diversity, biodiversity, natural selection, adaptation, reproductive isolation, hybridization and speciation.
Handouts will be provided electronically.
