This course is a survey of the field of Biogeography, the study of biological diversity across space and time. Factors and evolutionary history that influence both the ecology and evolution of organismal diversity will be covered. Topics will range from how species distributions arise to how we define species and how we reconstruct the influence and importance of both ecology and evolutionary history on their distributions.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
