Fall-Spring Semesters

Students in this laboratory science course will study the development of evolution as a scientific concept from before the time of Charles Darwin until present day.  Sociological, cultural and historical contexts will be used to consider how the theory and mechanisms were developed over time.  This course will use the framework of evolution and natural selection to explore the origin and diversification of the major Kingdoms of organisms on the planet.  Indoor and field-based labs will apply current scientific methods and protocols to examine common local species and their adaptions to the environment.  Dissection will not be a part of this course. 2 hours lecture with 1 three-hour laboratory (BIO235).
