REPRODUCTION THROUGH EVOLUTION: ANIMAL DIVERSITY, TUESDAY, December 8, 2009, 7:30 – 10:00 PM, BS 144. Course Description: This course uses animal biology as a vehicle for introducing non-science majors to scientific methodology, as applied to the life sciences, and to basic biological principles. The lecture portion of the course begins with a general discussion of cells and tissues, as related to understanding the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the major organ systems found in animals. It continues with a discussion of these systems, taking an adaptational approach to understanding how these systems are modified in different groups of animals to allow them to meet the challenges of living in their specific environments. The course then covers evolution, first, by developing a basic understanding of inheritance and evolutionary processes, and, second, by a discussion of animal diversity. The laboratory portion of the course involves group exercises that illustrate and expand on the concepts presented in lecture. This course meets the University Block 1
