BIOL134 - General Biology II with Lab

 

This course is the second in a two part biology series that is designed for students who intend to complete a degree that requires a majors-level biology course. Topics included in this course diversity of life on Earth, plant form and function, animal form and function, and ecology and behavior. The laboratory portion of this course will include hands-on as well as virtual laboratories that complement the topics and concepts covered in the lecture component. As part of the hands-on laboratory component, students are required to perform dissection of preserved animal specimens. Some of the laboratory activities require the use of glass or sharp laboratory instruments; therefore students must have a safe work area available to perform laboratory activities. Students must also have room temperature storage available in order to maintain laboratory materials and specimens. In addition, students must be able to document their laboratory work using still pictures and/or video. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details. Prerequisite: BIOL133
