Instructor:

Colin H. Martin

The purpose of this course is to introduce the structure and fuction of cells, and how structure and function drives organismal physiology and diversity. By the end of this course, through lecture and laboratory exercises, students should have an understanding of the basic components of cells, how cells and organisms transfer genetic information to future generations, how communication is integral to cellular and organismal function, and how cells and organisms generate and process energy to drive physiological funtions. In addition, students will continue to improve skills for scientific inquiry through activities designed to increase familiarity with the scientific literature and science terminology, improve skills to design and critically analyze experiments, foster ability to work with a scientific team, and provide opportunities to improve scientific writing. Any one topic covered in this course has enough material for a course of its own. However, this course will give basic overview of a series of selected topics that are meant to introduce students to the vast field of cellular and organismal biology and the use of biological science in life.

The study of animal behavior at multiple levels connecting neural, hormonal, and genetic mechanisms of behavior to an evolutionary perspective. The adaptive value of behaviors such as display, habitat selection, foraging pattern, and mating system is examined. Theoretical analysis of sexual selection and the evolution of cooperation and altruism are considered. Laboratory work emphasizes the measurement and analysis of animal behavior under natural conditions. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: A minimum grad of C- in BIOL 209; STAT 220 or MATH 303 recommended.

This course explores how the principles of evolutionary biology can be used to enhance our understanding of human disease and social psychology. In the first half of the course we will explore such topics as the evolution of virulence in pathogens, the persistence of fenetic diseases in human populations, the evolutionary basis of aging, and the disease consequences of mismatches between our curren environment and the environment in which humans evolved. In the second half of the course we will study the relationships between human social psychology and social interactions and will consider such topics as mate choice, parent-offspring raltions, selfishness and altruism, and the possible evolutionary basis of various mental illnesses. Four laboratory/recitation hours per week. Prerequisites: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209; any 300-level BIOL course.

In the second half of the course we will study the relationships between human social psychology and social interactions and will consider such topics as mate choice, parent-offspring raltions, selfishness and altruism, and the possible evolutionary basis of various mental illnesses. Four laboratory/recitation hours per week. Prerequisites: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209; any 300-level BIOL course.

This seminar, required for all senior Biology of Global Health majors, challenges students to examine the multiple aspects of global health in a unifying manner. In this seminar, students will integrate experienctial learning with current research and broad applications of global health, and will complete a capstone project focusing on a global health issue. This senior capstone course allows students majoring in Biology of Global Health to analyze specific issues and problems using the knowledge and understanding gained by completing the other required courses in the program. Four laboratory hours per week. This course does not fulfill the Biology BA or Biology BS requirement for a 400-level course. Prerequisite: senior status in declared Biology of Global Health major.

The purpose of this course is to introduce the structure and fuction of cells, and how structure and function drives organismal physiology and diversity. By the end of this course, through lecture and laboratory exercises, students should have an understanding of the basic components of cells, how cells and organisms transfer genetic information to future generations, how communication is integral to cellular and organismal function, and how cells and organisms generate and process energy to drive physiological funtions. In addition, students will continue to improve skills for scientific inquiry through activities designed to increase familiarity with the scientific literature and science terminology, improve skills to design and critically analyze experiments, foster ability to work with a scientific team, and provide opportunities to improve scientific writing. Any one topic covered in this course has enough material for a course of its own. However, this course will give basic overview of a series of selected topics that are meant to introduce students to the vast field of cellular and organismal biology and the use of biological science in life. Prerequisite: Concurrent or previous enrollment in CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 and C- or above in BIOL 207

Influences of humans on the global environment has reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dyanmics and conservation biology.
