Although you will encounter a good many “facts” along the way, your primary concern should be to understand and comprehend the general principles of heredity, development, immunology, ecology, and evolution. Your comprehension should reach a level that will allow you to demonstrate your understanding by clearly explaining and properly applying these principles, using the “facts” you have learned, in your written answers to examination questions. The level of skill should be sufficient to make the matter clear to a person who has taken 2:10 but is not enrolled in 2:11. LECTURE SCHEDULE
