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.
