    If anyone is interested I would like to teach an introductory course on Evolutionary Biology. Here is what I had in mind:
    Part I: What is Evolution
    -what are the separate theories that make up the modern concept of evolution?
    -what is the evidence?
    Part II: How are evolutionary change and adaptation explained?
    -How and why does evolution take place?
    -Natural Selection
    -Natural selection and adaptation
    Part III: Origin and evolution of bio-diversity
    -defining species
    -speciation
    Part IV: Evolutionary Biology present and future
    -Summarize main aspects of current concept of evolution
    -highlight areas of disagreement or contention
    -discussion on implications of evolutionary theory
    -materials for learning more about evolution.

    I will be basing the material for this course on the accepted authorities including Ernst Mayr, Steven J. Gould, Richard Dawkins, Maynard Smith, and others. Though I do not have a degree in evolutionary biology I do have a degree in behavioral science which involved studying several courses relating to evolution. Any interest?

    I would like to attend your class. I have the basic knowledge, but a structured overview would be nice :)
