BIO 322 - Plant Evolution, 4 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): BIO 122 , BIO 222  or permission of instructor
Plants have diversified into over 400,000 species that dominate all terrestrial habitats, support all other organisms, and sustain human life by supplying oxygen, foods, drugs, fuels, and fibers. This course focuses on the evolutionary patterns and processes shaping the astonishing array of adaptations across the plant kingdom. Through discussions of primary literature, field trips, and lab activities, students build their understanding of systematics research, skills in plant identification, familiarity with local flora, and appreciation of plant diversity.
