An in depth examination of plant cell biology, anatomy, physiology, genetics, biotechnology, economic importance, diversity, and classification. Teaches students sterile technique, basic plant tissue culture, and techniques for microscopic observation of plants. (Course Syllabus)
Introduces students to the structures, growth, reproduction, competition, survival, and diversity of plants. (Course Syllabus)
A study of the interrelationships of organisms with their physical and biological environment. Topics include an exploration of adaptations, population structure and dynamics, organization and classification of communities, and nutrient and energy flows in ecosystems. (Course syllabus)
Topics includes: major ecological concepts, local vegetation types; and methods and techniques of gathering and analyzing data; Interactions between plant populations or vegetation types and their environment.
This is a project- and laboratory-based course where the students will be allowed to generate knowledge about advanced level of biological science Topics include scientific method, biological chemistry, cell structure and function, energetic, cell division, genetics and evolution. (Course syllabus)
Topics include evolution of life, the structure and function of human, systems: nervous, circulatory, immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive, as well as diversity, development, behavior and ecology. (Course syllabus)
Topics include the introduction of general biological concepts, genetics, and a brief survey of living organisms combined and integrated with a hands-on laboratory component.
Focuses on the interrelationship of the biological and physical components of the environment and the impact of human activities on the biosphere. Topics include the historical, ecological, social, political and economic ramifications of the global environmental issues. (Course syllabus)
The course covers: stress concepts and mechanisms of common acclimation to environmental stresses.
The course examines the use of biotechnology techniques for the analysis and solution of environmental problems. Areas of particular interest include, phytoremediation technology, application of tissue culture for micro-propagation of wild endangered species, genetic engineering, waste management.
The course covers the patterns for community diversity in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems; community properties; rare, common and keystone species; local and regional diversity; diversity measurements, factors that influence diversity.
The course covers: the definitions of ecological restoration; principles of restoration; function and ecological integrity; causes of degradation.
The course covers: experimental design; sampling strategies; quality control (QC) programs and basic statistical methods for data analysis.
Study of interactions between humans and the environment, is an interdisciplinary science course that integrates principles from biology, chemistry, ecology, geology, and non-science disciplines.
An introduction to fundamental unifying principles in biology. Topics include: chemistry of life, cell structure and membranes, cellular functions (metabolism, respiration, photosynthesis, communication, and reproduction), genetics (inheritance patterns, DNA structure and function, gene expression, and biotechnology), and evolution. This course involves both lecture and lab components.
