Title Quantitative Methods in Behavioral Ecology 
Course Outline Course Outline 
Description This course is designed to provide a tool kit for testing hypotheses by statistical inference. The course introduces statistical thinking in the application of common univariate methods. Simultaneously, this course introduces core concepts of behavioral ecology and uses biological data sets from common and inexpensive animal systems as the model data for applying statistical methods. Thus, this course will provide students with pre-made examples of engaging hands-on activities to do in the classroom that generate data with which to teach how to apply quantitative methods to test hypotheses.
