Influences of humans on the global environment have 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 dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 208, or any 100-level GEOL, and CHEM 112 or CHEM 115

Fad diets, federal nutrition guidelines, trendy exercise programs, weight-loss pills, and celebrities pushing their current moneymakers are increasingly common in the media. Despite access to more information in the digital age, it is more difficult to discern what is actually true when we face so much information. This course will address popular misconceptions about our health by fact-checking popular claims with primary scientific literature. We will articulate what is accurate, or not, about claims made in the media and identify gaps in our knowledge. Topics will depend on student interests and the most current available research, but will likely include examination of trends in exercise and diet, as well as the actions and effectiveness of new pharmaceuticals. Prerequisites: BIOL 207, BIOL 208, and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209 or permission of instructor.

Instructor:

Sarah A. Heimovics

In this course, we will examine the neural and hormonal correlates of social behavior including vocalcommunication, aggressive behavior, reproductive behavior, pair bonding, parental behavior, and humansociality. We will consider how hormones influence the development and activation of behavior and, in turn,how behavior influences neural and endocrine physiology. A comparative approach will be emphasized to facilitate understanding the adaptive function of molecular and physiological mechanisms of behavior as well as the translational nature of behavioral neuroendocrinology research. In the laboratory component of the course, students will design and implement an experiment investigating the neuroendocrine regulation of social behavior in a non-human animal model. Prerequisite: A C- or better in NSCI 301 for NSCI students or C- or better in at least one 300-level BIOL course for BIOL students(or permission of the instructor).

In 1800, there were around 1-billion people on the planet, and only three percent lived in urban areas. Today we are approaching 8-billion humans, and more-than half live in cities. This course explores how cities function as ecosystems and shape local, regional, and global ecological and biogeochemical processes. We will examine how carbon, nutrients, and energy enter the city in the form of food and other resources, and exit as waste, and will use this conceptual framework to assess opportunities to move towards sustainability. We will make extensive use of primary literature and apply ecological network analysis tools to contrast human-dominated ecosystems with natural ecosystems. Students will design and implement independent research projects, and will work collaboratively to apply knowledge and skills to real-world urban sustainability problems. Prerequisite: C- or better in at least two 300-level BIOL courses.

The purpose of this course is to introduce the structure and function 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 functions. 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.

Urban agriculture is becoming increasingly common. In developed countries, disenchantment with industrial food production and renewed interest in urban development are fueling a cultural revolution centered around local agriculture. In developing countries, rapid and extensive increases in urbanization have resulted in extensive agricultural activities within densely populated areas. But despite the increase in the extent of urban agriculture, there is surprisingly little research on techniques used by urban farmers and community gardeners. The goal of this class is to try to summarize existing information, identify key research gaps, and assess the scalability and sustainability of the urban agriculture movement. Part of the class will be learning from practitioners and envisioning together how urban agriculture science can be used to make cities more just, equitable, and sustainable. For the laboratory component, students will design and implement independent research projects related to local food production. Prerequisite: C- or better in at least two 300-level BIOL courses.
