207. Systems Physiology
Fundamental study of the complementarity of human anatomical structure and physiological
function of the integumentary, endocrine, nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and
renal systems. Special emphasis on development of a mechanistic understanding of organ
system function and integrated physiological function across systems to promote homeostatic
regulation in the human body. Inclusion of experiential learning through laboratory activities.
Prerequisite: sophomore standing. Cross Listed as KIN 207. (Laboratory Science)

209. Plant Morphology
Structure and function of plants. Ecological, evolutionary, and physiological perspectives.
Prerequisite: BIO 141 and BIO 142. (Laboratory Science)

211. Evolution
Principles of evolution. Emphasis on modern evolutionary biology, evidence, and methods of
hypothesis testing. Prerequisite: BIO 141 and BIO 142. (Laboratory Science)

230. Conservation Biology
Ecological, evolutionary, and other biological principles and their application to the
maintenance of global and local biodiversity. One or more field trips may extend beyond normal
class hours. Prerequisite: BIO 142. (Science)

254. Ornithology
Basic biology of birds, emphasizing taxonomy, structure, ecology, behavior, distribution, and
natural history. May include an extended field trip. Other field trips may extend beyond normal
class hours. Prerequisite: BIO 142. Alternate years. (Laboratory Science)
