BIOL 1164 - Botany for Majors*

4 Credits
Botany is designed to be an introduction to the science of plants. Today plants play a major role in our very existence. They are, in fact, the only producers on this fragile planet. Many species are disappearing as we exploit the ecosystems where they are found. Most of you have studied the fundamental concepts of chemistry. We will briefly review these concepts including plant metabolism. We will begin with a study of the plant cell, followed by a study of plant organs, & some of the plant functions, such as photosynthesis. We will then depart our study of generalized plant anatomy & physiology to study plant populations & communities. We will complete the course with a study of the major Divisions in the Kingdom Plantae. Lab Fee.
