Prerequisite: (ENC 0025 and REA 0017) or EAP 1695, and MAT 0028, or passing scores on the SPC placement test. Biology of Marine Life is designed to provide the non-science major student with an understanding of basic biological principles using marine organisms as examples. The focus is on functional interactions at the cellular, organismal and community levels. The laboratory component will apply concepts through direct observations and experiments using the diversity of organisms in and from our local marine environment. (This course may not be taken for credit subsequent to receiving a grade of "C" or better in any course with a BSC prefix.) 77 contact hours.
