Instructor:

Randi R. Arevalo

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.

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

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

Aggressive behavior serves many different adaptive functions including territoriality, dominance status, mate acquisition/guarding, and offspring protection. While each of these different types of aggression can share specific behavioral features, the underlying biological mechanisms regulating each can differ markedly. This course will use the primary and secondary literature to explore these similarities and differences at multiple levels of analyses, and include discussions about the genetic, neurobiological, hormonal, organismal, and ecosystem mechanisms regulating aggressive behavior. Students will also design and implement an independent research project investigating the neuroendocrine regulation of aggressive behavior in songbirds. Prerequisite: a C- or better in at least two 300-level BIOL or NSCI course.

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.

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. Prerequisite: Concurrent or previous enrollment in CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 and C- or above in BIOL 207

This course is intended to give an overall introduction to the major endocrine systems of vertebrates and their involvement in the control of physiological functions. Major principles involved in signaling by hormones, the integration of hormonal mechanisms to maintain homeostasis, and the evolution of endocrine systems will be covered. Emphasis will be placed on similarities and differences among vertebrate groups, but focus will be primarily mammalian endocrinology. The primary objective is to highlight the complexity of control and integration of physiological functions by chemical signals such as hormones. Prerequisites: BIOL 207, BIOL 208 and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209.

Global Food Systems: Feeding the World and Protecting the Planet This course will investigate how a growing human population (estimated to reach 9-10 billion by 2050) can be provided with sufficient food to ensure a high quality, nutritious diet for all while still protecting the Earth’s ecosystems, on which all life, including human life, ultimately depends. It will be in a seminar format, and will focus on reading, presenting, and discussing the primary literature. Topics will depend on student interests and the most current available research, but will likely include examination of the costs and benefits of intensive vs. extensive agriculture, methods of increasing crop yields, meat-based versus vegetarian diets, organic food production, genetically-engineered crops, food production and distribution systems and food waste, industrial fishing and aquaculture, land and water supply degradation, and the consequences of climate change for food production. Prerequisites: BIOL 207, BIOL 208, and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209 or permission of instructor.

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 experiential 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. This course does not fulfill the Biology B.A. or Biology B.S. requirement for a 400-level course. Prerequisite: Senior status as a declared Biology of Global Health major.
