1106. General Biology Laboratory I.                                                                        1(0-3)
A laboratory experience that focuses on laboratory techniques, data collection and analysis. The experience reinforces and promotes an understanding of the cell structure, energy transformation, reproduction and genetic variability. Pre- or corequisite: BIOL 1306 and exemption from READ 0300.

1107. General Biology Laboratory II.                                                                                             1(0-3)
Experimental and observational techniques used to study plant and animal life at the organismal, population and community levels including morphology, physiology, reproduction and ecology. Pre- or corequisite: BIOL 1307 and exemption from READ 0300.

1111 Introductory Botany Laboratory
A laboratory experience that reinforces an understanding of plant form, function, and identification. Pre- or corequisite: BIOL 1311.

1113 Introductory Zoology Laboratory
A laboratory experience that reinforces an understanding of animal form, function, and identification. Pre- or corequisite BIOL 1313.

1306. General Biology I.                                                                                            3(3-0-1)
Survey of contemporary biology that covers the chemical basis of life, structure, function and physiology of the cell, molecular biology and microevolution. Three lecture hours and one discussion hour a week for one semester. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL 1106 recommended. Prerequisites: exemption from READ 0300.

1307. General Biology II.                                                                                           3(3-0-1)
Continuation of a two-semester course in biological concepts; will emphasize organismal diversity and comparative anatomy, reproduction, physiology, ecology, behavior and evolution. Three lecture hours and one discussion hour a week for one semester. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL 1107 recommended. Prerequisite: BIOL 1306.

1311 Introductory Botany
Survey of the plant kingdom with emphasis on the evolution and diversity of form, function followed by a survey of plant diversity and ecology. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL 1108 is recommended.

1313 Introductory Zoology3(3-0)
Survey of the animal kingdom with emphasis on the evolution, structure, and function followed by a survey of animal diversity and ecology. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL 1113 is recommended.

1372. Biological Connections 3(3-0)
Role of biological sciences in issues of world concern. Some experience in biology assumed (either one year of high school) biology or credit or registration in BIOL 1306). Prerequisite: ENGL 1301.
