BIOL 237 - Integrative Biological Systems

4 Credits
This course features how biological interactions occur both within and across multiple levels (molecular, cellular, organismal, community, ecosystem and biosphere) using multiple techniques (experimental, theoretical, etc.). It is important to understand that living organisms and systems are part of integrated systems instead of isolated parts. Students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the difference between structural, compositional and functional aspects of biological systems
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the impact that humans have within specific scales of living systems
  • Demonstrate their understanding of the interaction between abiotic and biotic components of biological systems
