Many animals produce beautiful mating displays, but their evolution is a puzzle because they seem incompatible with survival. Darwin first proposed a viable explanation, but how we view his theory and how we study mating behavior has changed since then.

In this multi-media presentation, Dr. Kolluru will speculate on the past and future of studying mating behavior and its consequences in animals, including humans.  Come see why her "Biology of Sex" class has become one of the most popular on the Cal Poly campus. And if you have any "Ask Dr. Gita..." questions, we undoubtedly will have some interesting conversations!

During this course you will see filmed scenes of animals mating and hear discussion about sex in animals including humans. If this makes you uncomfortable this course may not be appropriate for you.

Cal Poly Professor Gita Kolluru has spent a lifetime studying the mating tactics of fish and insects. Dr. Kolluru is a Canadian transplant who left Ontario, Canada for near Ontario, California to do her MA and PhD at UC Riverside. She has studied fish in Cuba, Trinidad and Costa Rica, and crickets in Hawaii. She identifies her work as studying the costs and benefits of sexually selected displays and aggressive intermale interactions.
