Hours: 54 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB
Description: This is a general biology course focusing on a survey of the plant and animal kingdoms. The course covers the general principles of biology including: methods of science, cell organization, genetics, evolution, ecology, biodiversity, and anatomy. These principles are explored in more depth through the examination of additional topics which may include: disease and epidemiology, physiological ecology, animal behavior, biotechnology, population growth and regulation, ecosystem ecology, and conservation biology. Evolution and biodiversity are continuing themes running throughout the course and are included in each major topic. The course is designed for non-science majors and is especially useful for liberal studies, elementary education, environmental studies, recreation, and similar majors.
