ZOOL 625 - Evolution in Marine Systems (3)

The course will focus on concepts of evolution applied to the unique natural history of marine species, such as sexual selection and the evolution of sperm-egg interactions in free-spawning taxa; relationships among larval developmental mode, population genetic structure, geographic range, and rates of speciation and extinction in the fossil record; the Cambrian Explosion; marine biogeography, particularly the joint use of molecular phylogenetics and the fossil record to characterize spatial and temporal dynamics of species diversity in the coral triangle.
