Biology - Spring 2018

Human Biology - LAB — 3242
BIO 1500 – 0 credits
Kelly L. Tincher

This course covers basic structures and functions of the human body. Students will learn about the chemical basis of life, cellular structure and metabolism, tissues, and an overall survey of the organ systems of the body. An introduction to human evolution is presented. Recent developments in science, medicine, and health coupled with environmental issues and their impact on health are incorporated into the course. Laboratory exercises include use of the microscope, experimentation, and hands-on investigation of organ systems. Corequisite: ENG 1510, Reading score 80+. Master Course Syllabus

BIO 1580 – 0 credits
Robert J. Ratterman

Students will recognize, identify, describe, and classify representatives of the major phylogenetic and taxonomic groups of life on earth, surveying the three domains of life?s biodiversity and the archaea, bacteria, protist, fungi, plant, and animal realms. Students will study evolutionary history and relationships, life cycles, reproductive strategies, morphology, anatomy, physiology, behavior, and ecological roles of representative organisms. Laboratory may include one or more outdoor experiences. This survey course is appropriate for both science and non-science majors. Prerequisite: BIO 1570 or BIO 1575; Eligibility: ENG 1530.
