105 Biology of Human Concern 3 hours. This course examines general concepts in the life sciences, stressing those fundamentals to life processes and of human concern. This course does not count toward requirements for biology majors and minors. A two hour lab is included with this course. (2-2) No Prereq. F, Sp, Su.
112 Ethnobotany with Lab - 4 hours. Examination of human uses of plants and the cultural/societal origins of usage. Plants for medicine and health, food, beverage, protection, aesthetics, and recreation will be discussed. Basic concepts in cell biology, genetics, plant taxonomy/identification, plant anatomy, and plant physiology typical of Introductory Biology for non-majors courses will be covered. Through the lab, students will gain experience that will reinforce concepts from lecture.
