BIO 353 - Organismal Biology

4 Credit(s)

Organismal Biology is the study of how whole organisms work. The course begins with a survey of the diversity of life on Earth, with a focus on our shared evolutionary history and the relationships among all organisms. We then discuss common principles that underlie the structure and the function of individual organisms, as well as examples of the unique adaptations that differentiate the many forms of life. In lecture and lab, students will investigate the structure and function of plants and animals in particular, considering how they interact with and respond to their environments.

Prerequisite(s): BIO 151 , BIO 181 , or their equivalents; BIO 152 , BIO 182 , or their equivalents; completion of or concurrent enrollment in BIO 251 .
