Biology 133

Homepage

What, you ask, is integrative biology?  It is the biology of whole organisms and systems - how life works.  It goes into biology in more depth than the other introductory courses - 101 and 102, and it complements the detailed cellular information presented in Biology 131, Intro to Cellular Biology.  From the catalog:

BIOL133   Integrative Biology:  

A media-rich lecture environment facilitates examination of world biodiversity and how these organisms function as individuals and members of an ecosystem. Topics include a survey of the major groups of organisms, animal and plant structure and function, animal and plant systems, responses to stimuli, etc. These principles are then applied to complex phenomena such as behavior and responses to environmental phenomena such as eutrophication and global warming. 

Prerequisite: Biology 101 or 102. 

Credit: 3 hours
