Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Use the scientific method of inquiry to investigate ecological and evolutionary phenomena.
  • Apply the concepts learned in BIOL 265 to an experimental and hands-on observational setting.
  • Apply standard analytical procedures for the study of evolution and ecology. These include the following areas of study: experimental design and set-up; descriptive statistics and hypothesis testing; age structure of a natural population; sampling and describing population attributes; sampling, describing, and quantifying the flora, fauna, and relevant abiotic characteristics of a terrestrial habitat; plant competition; optimal foraging theory; sampling and describing community characteristics and functions; primary productivity; natural selection; colonization and adaptive radiation of Hawaiian flora and fauna; taxonomy, systematics, and phylogenetics.
