GLG 204 Survival on an Evolving Planet (4)

Paleontology is the scientific study of past life, and is therefore an interface between geology and biology. It includes such topics as the origin of life, mass extinctions, exceptional fossil preservation, and response of past ecosystems to climate change, to name a few. This course provides an overview of the history of life and an introduction to the primary research areas in paleontology.

Prerequisite: any 100-Level BIO or GLG course.
