This course is designed as a general introduction to organismal biology: what happens at the level of the organism and above. Students will learn how evolution works, what organisms evolution has created, and how those organisms interact with the environment and each other. These three topics comprise the three sections of the course material: evolution, diversity, and ecology. Students will gain a general facility with the major topics of each of these fields to prepare them for future courses in the biology department and related fields. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade other than W may repeat the course in the summer or winter; or only in the fall or spring semester with a petition to the College of Arts and Sciences Deans' Office.
