SCI102 Biodiversity and Ecology


In this course you investigate the nature and diversity of life, from microorganisms and fungi to plants and animals. You explore the mechanism of biodiversity: evolution through natural selection. You also learn how different groups of organisms interact and are dependent on their habitats and each other. You use and expand this knowledge in laboratory classes by observing and describing specimens representing the variety of organisms. You also develop practical skills including scientific drawing, microbial isolation techniques, and the use and construction of identification keys.
