Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The seminar focuses on a particular topic each semester and aims to illuminate it using a series of papers, including classical seminal papers that have set the stage as well as recent developments. In the SS, we will focus on rapid and contemporary evolution, including work on anthropogenic evolution, climate change, and human health.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Each student gives a seminar on one of the papers from the list. Reading of all papers is however required in order to participate in the discussion. Discussion and presentation are in English.
