BIL151 - General Biology Laboratory (1 credit)
Seminar Courses for Biology Majors
Students work in teams to design original research projects in cellular biology.
150 (General Biology for science majors)
BIL160 - Evolution and Biodiversity (4 credits)
Evolutionary processes from an organismal perspective. Systematics, biogeography, and a survey of the diversity of life, with emphasis on the morphological, ecological, and behavioral adaptations of selected representative of the Domains of living organisms. Three hours of lecture per week, and one hour of peer-led workshop.

BIL161 - Evolution and Biodiversity Laboratory (1 credit)
Hypothesis testing, experimental design and execution
in biodiversity, evolution, and organismal biology.
Corequisite: BIL 160
BIL226 - General Botany (3 credits)
Survey of the plant kingdom, including evolution, plant diversity, reproduction, structure, function, and ecology.
Prerequisite: BIL 150/151 and 160/161

Prerequisite: BIL 150/151 and 160/161.
BIL330 - Ecology (3 credits)
An introduction to the study of organisms in relation to their environment.
Prerequisites: One year of biology for majors with laboratory.
BIL360 - Comparative (Animal) Physiology (3 credits)
Another of the four upper division core courses required of biology majors,
this course provides a comparative approach to the structure and function of organ systems across animal taxa.
Prerequisite: BIL 150/151 and 160/161, BIL 255.
Strong understanding of evolutionary mechanisms and theory is required.
