BIOL 330    Natural History of Insects    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
General Education: AA/AS Area IV
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course provides an introduction to the science of Entomology. Approximately eighty percent (80%) of all known species of animals are insects; therefore, they often have a profound effect on human civilization. Insects are extremely successful animals, and despite their small size, they affect many aspects of human lives. All varieties of natural and modified ecosystems, both terrestrial and aquatic, support communities of insects that present a variety of lifestyles, forms, and functions. Through the study of insects, students can observe the major principles of numerous fields of study including ecology, ethology (behavioral ecology), population, and community ecology, among others, right in their own backyards. Due to their diversity and presence in all kinds of environments, insects provide a good framework for making scientific observations. Attendance on one field trip is required.

BIOL 464    Dinosaurs and the Science of Life    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B2; IGETC Area 5B
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course investigates the evolution, form, function and extinction of dinosaurs as a means of introducing students to scientific principles that are common to all forms of life on Earth. Topics will include scientific methodology; the mechanisms of evolution; the structure, early history and geologic processes of the Earth; the evolutionary history of life on Earth; the diversity, ecology, physiology and behavior of dinosaurs; birds as dinosaurs. Additional topics will include proposed mechanisms of dinosaur extinction including meteor impacts, volcanic plume events, global winters, global greenhouse warming, acid rain, and how each may occur today; the structure and function of DNA, cellular reproduction, DNA and cloning technologies and whether they can be used to resurrect extinct organisms such as dinosaurs.
