Credit Hours: 4
Contact Hours - Lecture: 3 Lab: 3
This course is a continuation of introductory Biology I for majors. It includes a detailed survey of the major phylogenetic lineages. This includes a comparison of the systems of different organisms. Ecological roles and relationships, as well as behavior of organisms, will be integrated throughout.  CIP Code: (2601015103)
Prerequisite: College Level Readiness in Reading AND Writing; MATH 0308  and BIOL 1406  
Student Learning Outcomes
1 - Apply scientific reasoning to investigate questions, and utilize scientific tools such as microscopes and laboratory equipment to collect and analyze data. 2 - Use critical thinking and scientific problem-solving to make informed decisions in the laboratory. 3 - Communicate effectively the results of scientific investigations. 4 - Identify the major phyla of life with an emphasis on plants and animals, including the basis for classification, structural and physiological adaptations, evolutionary history, and ecological significance. 5 - Describe basic animal physiology and homeostasis as maintained by organ systems. 6 - Compare different sexual and asexual life cycles noting their adaptive advantages. 7 - Illustrate the relationship between major geologic change, extinctions, and evolutionary trends 8 - Describe modern evolutionary synthesis, natural selection, population genetics, micro and macro evolution, and speciation. 9 - Describe phylogenetic relationships and classification schemes. 10 - Employ teamwork for a shared purpose or goal.
