Credit, Degree Applicable
A general introduction to evolution, the diversity of life, plant form and function, and ecology. Intended for students majoring in the biological sciences, but open to all qualified students.
C-ID BIOL 135S (BIO 100A + BIO 100B)
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Construct the framework of biology using evolution as a unifying concept.
- Outcome 2: Synthesize evidence supporting evolution as the mechanism for the diversity of life and distinguish diverse forms of life.
- Outcome 3: Compare and contrast form and function for the major plant phyla and correlate this to the evolution and use of land plants.
- Outcome 4: Evaluate the interactions between organisms and their environment through ecological principles.
- Outcome 5: Assemble observations to generate hypotheses, design and develop experiments, analyze and evaluate data, recommend new questions and support or refute other studies.
