BY 1113; BY 1214 - Biology I and II
An introduction to biology. These two courses emphasize the organization, structure and basic principles
governing the lives of all organisms at the
molecular, cellular, tissue and organ system, organism
and population levels. The courses are a continuum and are to be taken in sequence. Biology I includes
cytology, energetics, genetics, kinds of organisms,
and nervous and circulatory systems. Biology II continues
with organ systems of animals and plants,
reproduction, development, behavior, ecology and
evolution. The laboratory involves a dynamic study
of these principles with the use of living materials as
much as is feasible.
Biology I is a prerequisite for
Biology II. This is the introductory biology sequence
required for Biology majors.
