All human societies have laws against deviant behaviors, although humans are not the only species that exhibit such behaviors. In this course, we will take an evolutionary approach to explore the adaptive benefits of some fantastically deviant behaviors in nature.

Gordon Plague is a Professor of Biology at SUNY Potsdam, where he has worked since 2011. He mainly teaches courses in microbiology and evolutionary biology, and has published papers on topics ranging from the behavioral ecology of insects to the evolution of parasitic genes in bacteria.
