This course will deal with issues in animal communication and will include topics that fall into several broadly conceived categories including, but not limited to, the ontogeny of communication, behavioural and neural basis of perception, evolution of communication and ultimate function of communication. This will be a seminar/discussion-based course and, as such, all students will be required to give a group lecture, a “Journal Club” presentation, a seminar presentation, write a critique of another student’s seminar and write a final term paper as well as attending and participating in all lectures/presentations.
Policy Re. Academic Integrity
The University of Alberta is committed to the highest standards of academic integrity and honesty. Students are expected to be familiar with these standards regarding academic honesty and to uphold the policies of the University in this respect. Students are particularly urged to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the Code of Student Behaviour (online at http://www.uofaweb.ualberta.ca/secretariat/studentappeals.cfm) and avoid any behaviour which could potentially result in suspicions of cheating, plagiarism, misrepresentation of facts and/or participation in an offence. Academic dishonesty is a serious offence and can result in suspension or expulsion from the University.
