Evolution is the underlying theme with emphasis placed on presenting diversity within a phylogenetic framework. General principles of biology are covered, as well as comparative structure, physiology, nutrition, circulation, gas exchange, reproduction, and development, including major evolutionary trends. Student Learning Outcomes : After completing this course, students should be able to: 1) Explain the phylogenetic relationships and the structural and reproductive features of the major groups of life. 2) Recite the major biological processes and systems. 3) Summarize the significant ecological relationships of life. 4) Understand the nature of scientific research. Students will be assessed for the above skills by written exams, quizzes, and (in the laboratory) practicals and other assignments (to be discussed in lab). Instructors : This class is team-taught to provide expertise in the areas of 1) microbes, basal eukaryotes, fungi, “algae” and plants (Francis Bozzolo), 2) evolution & invertebrate animals (Dr. Hedin), and 3) vertebrate animals (Dr. Berta).

    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.
