This course emphasizes the incredible diversity of
life that has evolved on the Earth.
The course is primarily for
students majoring in
We have four main goals as part of this course:
1. Learn about biodiversity, systematics, and how organisms are related to one another.
2. Develop an understanding of evolution and how living organisms survive and adapt to their surroundings.
3. Develop an appreciation for the complex interactions evolved by species in representative communities/ecosystems and contributions that all organisms make towards the sustainability of life on the earth.
4. Develop an appreciation for the infinite uses of various species in the lives of humans.
In order to facilitate a greater appreciation for all organisms, students are required to design a webpage based around a particular theme - in 2009, it was Christmas. You can visit these webpages at multipleorganisms.net. While you are there, please take some time to read Dr. Tom Volk's ORGANISMAL Christmas story - you'll be surprised at the diversity of creatures that pop up throughout the tale.
