BIOL 230 - Physiological Systems

(3)
FA. An exploration of the physiological function of animals and plants that builds upon ecological and cellular biology concepts and lays a foundation for more advanced studies in the upper level biology courses. The animal physiology section will emphasize vertebrates, and the students will come to an understanding of how cells, organs and the major systems of the body interact to maintain the relatively constant internal conditions known as homeostasis. The plant section of the course will focus on angiosperms and gymnosperms, seeking to inform students of basic plant morphology and anatomy that leads to understanding of growth requirements and physiological processes of plants. Understanding the processes by which plants grow and develop connects students to topics such as ecosystem function, physical transfer of solar to chemical energy, nutrition and human health. Biology 230 and BIOL 230L are required courses for biology majors. Lectures and discussions. Prerequisites: BIOL 161  (or BIOL 141 ), CHEM 102  or CHEM 103 . Corequisite: BIOL 230L . Lab fee: $70.
