This course continues the sequence of undergraduate preparation for biology majors. The course is a survey of the diversity of unicellular and multicellular life on earth, focusing on the relationships between structure and function, as well as evolutionary adaptations to their environments. Topics deal with classification, development, evolutionary relationships and ecological functions of living organisms inclusive of prokaryotes, fungi, protists, plants and animals. Laboratories will emphasize life forms, experimentation and dissections. Field trips will be used to examine organisms in their natural settings.
