BIOL4921    Animal Behaviour & Behavioural Ecology Field Course

This course represents a capstone requirement and experiential learning opportunity; it teaches students the ways and means of exploring animal behaviour and understanding the intricacies of animal interactions with and within their natural environment.  Conducted initially in a wildlife sanctuary in Sabah, Malaysia, and currently at two field sites in South Africa, this course exposes students to 'research-in-making' with hands-on participation in field studies of animal behaviour and behavioural ecology.  It teaches students how to build a conceptual framework for investigating animal behaviour and how to put this framework into a practice of collecting, processing, and analysing data.
