Course Description for General Biology III

BSC2012C: General Biology III
Prerequisites: BSC1010C, BSC1011C This course is designed to introduce students to the diversity and evolution of fungi and animals and the anatomy and physiology of representative taxa. During this course we will look at the tremendous biodiversity that results from the basic building blocks described in General Biology I and II. We will conduct an overview of the major groups of fungi and animals, focusing on unique adaptations and evolutionary origin. We will then examine the development of organs and organ systems in representative groups to provide a comparative view of animal anatomy and physiology. The laboratory involves experimentation with living animals and/or dissection of preserved animals. (A laboratory fee of $51.93 will be assessed.)
