This course is challenging. Students who enrol should be seriously interested in the study of life. Expensive and fragile equipment and supplies must be handled with respect and maturity. The student will conduct simple but interesting and thought-provoking experiments.
In general the topics include:
1. Basic cell biology
2. Principles of ecology
4. Plant and animal diversity
5. Biological environmental problems
6. Critical study of prebiotic, and biotic evolution
