BIO 202 - Organismal Biology and Ecology

Semester Hours: 4

The second in a series of two foundational courses (with BIO201) in biology, designed to serve as an introduction for studnets who are taking a biology or molecular biology major or minor, or for studnets in some related disciplines. This lecture and lab course employs similar structure and pedagogical approaches as BIO201. BIO202 is an integrative, evolution-themed exploration of structure and function in plants and animals, along with study of interactions of organisms at the population, community and broader scales. In addition to exposure to laboratory skills and techniques, concepts and practices of experimental design and data analysis and interpretation are emphasized in investigative labs.

Prerequisite: C- or better in BIO201
Lab Included: LB
When Offered: Multiple sections in spring; one section in fall (enrollment permitting)
