Description

BIOLOGY 171 is a one-term course in ecology and evolutionary biology that, together with BIOLOGY 172 and 173, collectively form the introductory biology course unit.

The primary aims of BIOLOGY 171 are:

  1. to provide factual and conceptual knowledge concerning the origin and complex interactions of the Earth's biodiversity
  2. to give an integrated overview of biological organization including genes, individuals, kin groups, populations, species, communities, and ecosystems
  3. to engage with biological hypotheses dealing with prominent current issues such as human evolutionary origins, emerging diseases, conservation biology and global change
  4. to develop critical-thinking skills.

Topics in BIOLOGY 171 are divided among three primary areas:

  • Mendelian genetics and evolutionary processes
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecology

Intended Audience:

The two-term set of BIOLOGY 171, 172, and 173 is intended for majors in biology, other science programs, or pre-professional studies. Other suitably prepared students wishing detailed coverage of biology are also welcome.
