The second course of the IBH curriculum is offered to Sophomores in the program during their Spring semester. Investigate the diversity, structure and function of plants and animals in both an environmental and evolutionary contexts. Conceptual themes and techniques of molecular and cellular levels of biological organization will be integrated as well. The laboratory includes vertebrate dissection. This class also meets in a small class setting three times per week for lectures as well as once a week for laboratory components that familiarize students with the physiology and function of both plants and animals. Dr. Ray Zielinski teaches first on plants and is followed by Dr. Chris Cheng who focuses on animals.
