PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGY 1210-009 FALL 2007 TH 6-8pm JTB310 Goals: If you intellectually engage in this course it will help you understand the process of science as a way of seeking knowledge and give you a framework of the concepts in biology. Biology is central to understanding the world around us. My goal is to help you become "biologically literate"–capable of using biological concepts to make decisions in your roles as individual, family caretaker, citizen and member of the biosphere. Can a pill make you thin? Does sunlight cause cancer? Are the oceans and forests inexhaustible resources? How many people can the earth sustain?
