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 emphasizes vertebrates, and the students will come to an understanding of how cells, organs, and the major systems of the body interact to maintain homeostasis. The plant section of the course focuses 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. BIOL 230 and BIOL 230L are required courses for biology majors. Prerequisites: BIOL 161  or BIOL 141 CHEM 102  or CHEM 103 . Corequisite: BIOL 230L . Lab fee: $70.
