BIOL 101 - Evolution and Ecology


3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: SB credit.
Most introductory biology courses focus on cellular processes or human anatomy and physiology. Topics of ecology, evolution, and biodiversity are not explored in detail or omitted altogether. Evolution and Ecology helps students understand major biological concepts through the lens of evolutionary principles. This course takes a different approach to understanding biology, emphasizing concepts over details and scientific reasoning over terminology. Topics include natural and sexual selection, genetics, evolution of sex and mating strategies, population ecology, community ecology, macroevolution. For non-majors only. Fall or Spring.
