A science-based course for curious adult learners who have some birding experience.
The focus is on avian evolution – including the scientists whose work has led to the modern theory of evolution, the evolutionary processes that have resulted in over 10,000 species of birds today, and the geological events that have been much of the cause of today’s avian multitude. From dinosaurs in Pangea to mountains rising in California, we’ll cover 100 million years of the earth’s history, ending with California’s remarkable birdlife – all in six weeks.
PDFs of the Powerpoint slides will be made available to the participants.
Recordings of the presentations will be available for participants to view .
