What are the major ways that plants and plant products contribute to human life and how have humans modified plants and their environments? It is about humans and their knowledge, uses, and abuses of plants. The biology of plants is considered from a scientific viewpoint; drawing on topics of anatomy, morphology, physiology, ecology, evolution, taxonomy, and biotechnology. The basis of this course is
science literacy, defined as citizen-level fluency for comprehending the process through which science’s way of knowing brings understanding of the natural world.

BIOL 115 Physiology of Exercise with Lab (4)
