This course focuses on animals and systems biology, including a survey of animal types and of the organismal biology of animals. Organisms' methods of response and adaptation to the environment and to each other are also emphasized. Laboratory includes hands-on dissection of preserved animal specimens in a classroom setting, under the supervision of a mentoring instructor. Three class hours and 2 laboratory hours per week. BIO 152 assumes a basic knowledge of chemistry, cell structure and function, and the concepts explaining the genetic unity and evolutionary diversity of species. Prerequisite: BIO 151 or permission of instructor. The combination of BIO 121 and BIO 152 does NOT count as a sequence for the Math/Science degree.
