Speciation and Extinctions in Time and Space, Introductory Course

  • 7.5 credits

How and why are new species formed? And why do other species become extinct? Ever since Darwin formulated his ideas scientists have tried to explain this.

This course examines genetics, plate tectonics, ethology, climatology, behavioral ecology and environment in an attempt to answer these questions.

Note! This course is given in Swedish, for more information please visit the Swedish course page.
