Introductory Biology I

You are a biological being, as are the foods that you eat. We use products from other organisms to make many of the clothes that we wear, build our homes, provide medicines, and give beauty to our lives. Therefore, developing an appreciation and understanding of the biological world is important to living in this world and becoming a responsible steward of its resources. Who hasn't watched a bird and wondered what it would be like to be able to fly? To see the world from a different perspective? This course will provide an introduction to fundamental biological topics (including cells, energy transduction, genetics, evolution, organismal structure/function, ecology) for non-majors in biology-related fields.
