Current teaching responsibilities (2018/2019)


  • Current Topics in Biology (non-majors). Introduction to major themes in the biosciences (e.g., anatomy, genetics, evolution), with emphasis on current topics (e.g., conservation biology, cancer biology).

  • Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy (upper level course). Anatomical and physiological adaptations in different groups of extant and extinct vertebrates. Overview of major organ systems, as well as adaptations for flight, swimming, terrestrial locomotion etc.

  • Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy Laboratory (upper level lab). Anatomy and functional morphology of selected vertebrate specimens (casts of fossils, real skeletons and bones, dissection specimens). 

  • Evolution (upper level course). Evidence for – and mechanisms of – evolution (e.g., fossil record, biogeography, population genetics, speciation). The course also includes an overview of the history of Life on Earth (e.g., major evolutionary events, mass extinctions).
