    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Biology is the study of life.There are four major themes we will touch upon at various times during the year:

    1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Process – How do organisms live, grow, respond to their environment, and reproduce?
    2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics – How and why do organisms interact with their environment and what are the effects of these interactions?
    3. Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits – How are characteristics of one generation passed on to the next? How can individuals of the same species and even siblings have different characteristics?
    4. Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity – How can there be so many similarities among organisms yet so many different kinds of plants, animals, and microorganisms? How does biodiversity affect humans?

    Lecture, lab and discussion techniques will provide students with the opportunities to think critically about concepts and their relationship to the world in which they live.
