The Integration of Biological Knowledge Part Three, The Integration of Biological Knowledge and The History of Life , is the longest portion of the course and includes the following topics: geologic time, the origin of life, photosynthesis, aerobic respiration, endosymbiosis and eukaryotic cells, sexual reproduction, multicellularity, adaptive radiations and mass extinctions, vertebrate evolution, and human evolution. In presenting the history of life on Earth, I have changed the emphasis from the traditional concentration on the Phanerozoic Eon in favor of the more fundamental events of the Precambrian. This allows me to concentrate on prokaryotic evolution including such milestones as the evolution of photosynthesis, aerobic respiration, and the endosymbiotic evolution of eukaryotic cells. Following these topics, I present the evolution of sexual cellular reproduction and the evolution of multicellularity in eukaryotes. This sequence emphasizes the major features of all of life

    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.
