BIO 144 - General Biology II

3 Credits

General Biology II is a continuation of the foundations in biology established in BIO 143  and designed for both majors and non-majors. This course surveys the evolution and diversity of microbes, fungi, plants, and animals. Students will examine the advantages of adaptions, compare and contrast reproductive strategies, and explore the role of different organisms in the ecosystem. The second half of the course focuses on the anatomy and physiology of animal organ systems. Students are also introduced to basic concepts of ecology. Inquiry based study in the concurrent laboratory component (BIO 144) provides hands-on application of appropriate lecture material.
