Our program in animal biology includes both invertebrate and vertebrate animals. This program addresses three general questions about animals: 1) How do they work (form, function, behavior, physiology, ecology)? 2) How do they develop (gene expression, cell biology, morphogenesis)? and 3) How do they evolve (genetics, diversity, phylogeny)? Students will develop a comprehensive overview of how the different levels of biology relate to one another, from molecules to behaviour, from physiology to ecology.
