BI SC 002

Genetics, Ecology, and Evolution

Evolution is a central theme of biology, and it helps us to understand the process of life that is ongoing all across our globe. The interactions among members of this global community provide the backdrop for understanding the ecology of our planet and our place in that community. BI SC 002 combines genetics/human genetics, evolution, and ecology as a study of how living organisms inherit their traits, how plants and animals evolved, and how they now interact. It is an introductory course for non-science majors. By the end of the course, students should develop a basic understanding of genetic and biological terms and their importance to our technologically advanced society. There are no prerequisites for this course.
