Anatomy & Physiology I - LAB — 4463
BIO 2510 – 0 credits
Kirk J. Parmenter

This first of two sequential human anatomy and physiology courses is designed for students who have had little or no previous study of the body or the physical and chemical principles on which body structure and function is based. In this course, students will learn basic chemistry and physics, cytology, and histology. Students will study the following organ systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and respiratory. In the accompanying laboratory, students will learn basic terminology, microscopy, animal dissection, organ dissection, and experimental process and protocols. Prerequisite/Corequisite: ENG 1510; Prerequisite: CHE 1500 (or above)-unless high school chemistry was passed. J fall, spring; C fall, spring. Master Course Syllabus

Conservation Biology — 4377
BIO 2550 – 3 credits
Janis L. Bowman

Students will study, discuss, and present information related to the global loss of biodiversity. Traditional as well as modern conservation practices will be discussed emphasizing the ways in which the principles of genetics, ecology, and evolutionary biology are being utilized to conserve and protect at-risk species and global biodiversity. The growing need for the application of ecological principles to our human role in the environment, including topics such as habitat alteration and fragmentation, introduction of exotic species, ecological economics, the importance of diversity, and extinction will be discussed. Multiple field trips will be included outside of scheduled class time. Prerequisite: ENG 1510 and BIO 1550 or BIO 1570 or (BIO 1575 + BIO 1580). J fall. Master Course Syllabus

Aug 24 – Dec 17 Tue, Thu 10:00 am – 11:15 am
Ecology — 4375
BIO 8510 – 4 credits
Janis L. Bowman

Students will be introduced to the interactions between living organisms and their physical, chemical, and biological environment. Several levels of ecological organization will be examined, including the study of different types of populations, communities, and ecosystems. Topics include population structure and growth, species interaction, energy flow, nutrient cycling, succession, and applications to current environmental management issues. Students will perform ecological experiments in the filed as well as in the laboratory. Eligibility: ENG 1530, MAT 1590 (or higher); Prerequisite: BIO 1570 (or BIO 1575 and BIO 1580).
