COURSE INFORMATION PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGY II (BIOL 1108L) BIOL 1108L is a required component of BIOL 1108, a course in organismal biology for science majors. An introduction to Earth’s biodiversity will be presented in the context of habitats (lakes and forests) in order to identify adaptations to those environments and to study interactions among organisms. The approach will be inquiry-based, will feature cooperative learning, and will use the scientific process and writing to encourage critical thinking skills. As a result, labs do not run parallel to lecture but complement the lecture portion by emphasizing slightly different aspects of the overall course material. Please read the Introductory Material in your Lab Manual before the first lab. The course syllabus is a general plan for the course; deviations announced to the class by the instructor may be necessary. BIOL 1108L is a Writing Intensive Lab Course. It closely follows the guidelines established by The University of Georgia’s Writing Intensive Program (WIP). Our goal in following these guidelines is to help you become better writers in your academic field of science, as writing and thinking are parallel cognitive (learning) processes. Research has shown/it is now well known that writing engages individuals in the information being studied and therefore results in better learning and retention of the subject material. INSTRUCTORS: Graduate Laboratory Assistant (GLA): GLA names, specific teaching assignments and email addresses will be posted outside of room 403 (The Biology Instruction Office is located on the 4 th floor) and on the 1108L eLC page ( https://www.elc.uga.edu/webct/entryPageIns.dowebct ). Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to discuss course material directly with their lab instructor during office hours. LAB PROGRAM COORDINATOR: Mrs. Kris Miller Office: Room 402, Biological Sciences Building Office Hours: By appointment – email or call Phone: (706) 542-1681 E-Mail: [email protected] DATA COLLECTION SPECIALIST: Mrs. Davis Office: Room 403, Biological Sciences Building Phone: (706) 542-1684 E-Mail: [email protected] Please see Mrs. Davis with any concerns regarding enrollment, late add to the course, withdrawal from the course, taking or removing an Incomplete (I), and any other administrative concern. BIOSCIENCE LEARNING CENTER: The Bioscience Learning Center (BLC) is located in room 406 of the Biological Sciences Building. This facility houses computers (both MAC and PC) for use by students enrolled in courses at UGA. All BLC computers are Internet connected. The BLC charges a small fee for printing (6¢ per page) and photocopying (11¢ per page) and only accepts Bulldog Bucks for payment . Desk copies of the lab manual, corresponding lecture course text, and photo atlases are on reserve in the BLC for student use.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
