We examine the dynamics of species diversity and explore the evolution and impact of humans. Emphasis is placed on evolution, ecology, behaviour, and conservation as related to the gain and loss of biodiversity. The PBL (problem-based learning) and tutorial activities reinforce the lecture topics and develop skills facilitating the interpretation of scientific observations. The course is a prerequisite for many programs and most relevant to those focusing on evolution and ecology. PREREQUISITES: Grade 12 Biology U or Biology 1P03 (Introductory Biology). ANTIREQUISITES: Biology 1AA3 (Biodiversity, Evolution, and Ecology)

2 Biology 1M03 is not open to students with credit or registration in ISCI 1A24. COREQUISITE: Science 1A00 Students enrolled in Biology 1M03 must also register in Science 1A00 when completing their registration. This safety course is being offered as an online on AVENUE, details will be announced. Contact http://www.workingatmcmaster.ca/eohss/ , if you are unable to access this course. BIOLOGY 1M03 Biology 1M03 lectures are designed for students who intend to specialize in Science programs and is required for many higher level courses in the Faculty of Science. Upon completion of Biology 1M03, students will be able to: 1. Effectively discuss the fundamental concepts and underlying processes related to evolution, behaviour, ecology, and the conservation of biodiversity. 2. Work independently and in collaboration with others to compile, analyze, interpret, and present scientific data using oral, written, and internet formats necessary for biological sciences. The primary goal of the course is to prepare students academically for subsequent, specialized Biology courses and to ensure that students acquire skills essential for upper-level biology courses and biology-related fields of study.
