BI 329 - Plant Biology


This course provides an introduction to Botany, the study of plant biology.  Students are introduced to the fundamentals of plant biology through the study of plant anatomy, physiology, and the life cycle of plants.  The course then builds upon these botanical principals through an exploration of plant diversity and ecology, with an emphasis on plant taxa that impact human society (e.g. nutritional, medicinal, and poisonous species).  Laboratory classes provide a hands-on approach to learning the diversity and ecology of local plant species through field identification hikes within the extensive natural areas on campus, and through examination of preserved specimens available from the Saint Anselm College herbarium.

Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory each week for one semester. Four credits.

Prerequisite(s): BI 103  - BI 104  or equivalent as determined by Department Chair.
