This course is formed around three main biological principles: evolution, unity/diversity of life, and ecology and is intended for biology majors or other students with an in-depth interest in the biological sciences. The focus is on universal biological processes with emphasis on the whole organism and higher levels of organization. Evidence and mechanisms of evolution and speciation; evolutionary history and diversity of life; structure, function and evolutionary adaptations of organisms (including plants, fungi, animals, and unicellar organisms); general, population and community ecology; ecosystems and environmental concerns are covered. In laboratory, students will explore these themes with hands-on observations, dissections, laboratory activities and field exercises. BIOSC-130+BIOSC-131=C-ID BIOL 135S, CSU, UC
