BIOL 12100 Biology I: Diversity, Ecology, and Behavior

Session Offered:

Spring,Summer,Fall Credit 2.0

Prerequisites:

None

Description:

Overview of the unity and diversity of life. We attempt to construct a framework for ordering biology by studying both the shared and specialized modifications of organisms that allow them to adapt to their environment. We also apply biological principles to social, medical and environmental issues. Topics include: diversity of life, respiration, photosynthesis, mitosis/meiosis, Mendelian genetics and complications, natural selection, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, population growth (including humans), interactions among populations (competition, predation, parasitism), behavior, and conservation biology.
