This course is intended for Biology majors or other students with an in-depth interest in the Biological Sciences. The course focuses on universal biological processes with emphasis on the whole organism and higher levels of organization. The course is formed around three main biological principles: evolution, unity/diversity of life, and ecology. Topics include: evidence and mechanisms of evolution and speciation; evolutionary history and diversity of life; general, population and community ecology; ecosystems and environmental concerns; plant physiology. The laboratory covers similar themes with hands-on observations, dissections, laboratory activities and field exercises. BIOSC-130+BIOSC-131=C-ID BIOL 135S, CSU, UC
