BIO 205 - Zoology4 Cr.
Contact Hours Per Week: 3 Lec.
This is an introductory course in general zoology. Three main themes will be covered during the semester. Initial study will focus on a brief overview of cells, principles of Mendelian genetics, and an introduction to the process of evolution. This initial study yields insight into how such a wide variety of animal forms and functions were produced during the earth’s history. The second area of study will be an overview of features associated with the major animal phyla (groups). This will provide an understanding of how animals are classified especially in terms anatomical, developmental, and evolutionary differences. In concert with the second area, the third major area of study will be comparative dealing with the evolution of form and function.
