(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
This course follows Biology 1202 and moves from an investigation of cellular biology to the mechanisms of evolution which has provided much of the diversity seen in modern eukaryotes. It will provide insight into the necessity and methods of determining evolutionary history using the major groups Protista, Fungi, Plants, and Animals. Evolution will be used as a context in which biological diversity can be explained.
Prerequisite: Biology 1202 with a grade of “C-“ or higher.
