Module Title : Battles of the Sexes in the Animal World
Module Description : We have long considered sex being the romantic outcome of love, leading both parties into a joint venture. Yet sex in the animal world is in fact aggressive, competitive, stressful and sometimes fatal. Every animal tries hard to reproduce but each sex is profoundly in conflict with whom it mates and how much it invests into raising its offspring. This module allows students to explore the study of sex in the animal world and the rapid advances in sexual selection, learn how research on sexual selection is done, and decipher the future direction in research on sexual selection.
