BIOL 102
The Organism Spring 2025
Division III

Class Details

This course focuses upon the developmental and evolutionary processes that have given rise to a wide diversity of multicellular organisms. We consider many levels of biological organization, from molecular and cellular to individuals and populations in our examination of evolutionary concepts. Topics include meiosis and sexual reproduction, developmental and evolutionary mechanisms, and speciation with representative examples from a diversity of plants and animals. Readings are drawn from a variety of sources, including the recent primary literature. Although BIOL 101 is not a prerequisite for BIOL 102, students are expected to have basic knowledge of the cell and cellular processes, including: the structure and function of the cell, nucleic acids and proteins; as well as mechanisms of transcription, translation, and the regulation of genes.
