BIOL 0206 - Plants and Human Society


Credits: 3

This course will explore the relationship between plants and humans. We will focus on historical relationships such as the origins and influences of agriculture on the development of human societies, as well as current and potential impacts of plants and plant products on medicine, biotechnology, and economics. Students will be introduced to some basic principles of plant biology and ecology in order to understand pertinent aspects of agriculturally, medicinally, and economically significant plant groups. Display material, group work, and student presentations will be a significant part of this course.

Prerequisites: BIOL 0128 .
