What are the major ways that plants and plant products contribute to human life and how have humans modified plants and their environments? Biology 113, Plants and People, is a one-semester course (Science and Technological Inquiry Core Area) that endeavors to answer these questions. 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. Note: Course will be canceled if there are fewer than six (6) paid students enrolled as of Monday, July 22.
