BIOL& 213 - Majors Plant w/Lab

6.0 Credits
Part of three-quarter biology series (211, 212, 213). An introduction to ecology and the biology of plants, algae, prokaryotes, protists, and fungi with emphasis on structure, anatomy, physiology, reproduction, development and evolutionary trends of land plants.
Prerequisite (BIOL& 211 and ENGL& 101 and MATH 087 with a minimum grade of 2.0) and (CHEM& 121 or CHEM& 161 or equivalent with a minimum grade of 2.0).
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a critical and basic understanding of the nature, process and methodology of science, especially as it relates to the study of prokaryote, fungal, and plant evolution, diversity and biology, and to ecology. These include the principles underlying the theories and processes underlying scientific discovery and the nature of scientific evidence upon which such contemporary scientific theories are based.
  2. Describe, identify, and explain, with examples, important concepts of biology that apply to ecology and the evolution, structure and physiology of prokaryotes, fungi, and plants.
  3. Integrate across levels of biological organization to explain ecological structure and the structure and function of prokaryotes, fungi, and plants.
  4. Apply ecological and biological concepts in this course to regional, national and or global issues that may affect their lives in particular, and society in general.
  5. Communicate effectively using language and understanding of biology.
  6. Correctly and appropriately collect and analyze data, including basic statistical testing.
  7. Appropriately select and properly and safely use a variety of field and laboratory techniques and instruments.
  8. Productively work in groups to successfully complete group activities and assignments.
  9. Demonstrate information literacy: determine the extent of information needed, access information legally and efficiently, evaluate sources critically and incorporate the information effectively and ethically into scientific writing.
