This course will examine the ecological and evolutionary processes that drive the emergence, transmission, and spread of diverse human, plant, and animal diseases. This is a discussion-based course that relies on a mix of primary and secondary research literature to explore fundamental concepts in disease ecology and evolution.
When Offered Fall.
