BIO 118 - Animal Life

This introductory course focuses on organisms traditionally discussed in zoology courses including protists, invertebrate and vertebrate animals.  The course will cover the evolutionary relationships among these lineages of organisms, the adaptations exhibited by members of each group to their modes of living, the reproductive strategies employed by members of each group and the role of each group in the ecosystems of which they are a part.  The laboratory exercises will present a mix of inquiry-based and descriptive investigations centered around animal form and function.  Lecture 3 hours, laboratory 2 hours.  The course will meet for one half of the semester. 

Prerequisites: BIO 117 with a C- or higher.
