ENV BIOL 4040B - Advanced Evolution and Palaeobiology (Hons) Pt 2

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2021

This course is part of the Honours in Evolution and Palaeobiology degree and runs in parallel with ENV BIOL 4055A/B Honours Evolution and Palaeobiology Project. The aim of this course is to help you build essential research, critical thinking and science communication skills. You will develop and improve your ability to synthesise and review the scientific literature, present oral summaries of your research project, and develop technical and analytical skills involved with data analysis and interpretation. In carrying out these tasks you will develop an ability to collect and evaluate information, dissect complex ideas, identify gaps in knowledge, develop an interesting viewpoint, assemble a persuasive argument and draw valid conclusions. An important component is the development of a research proposal that will be implemented and executed in the course ENV BIOL 4055A/B (Honours Evolution and Palaeobiology Project 1 & 2).
