Students registering for BIOL1310 may elect this laboratory course which meets for one three-hour session each week. This laboratory component is required for all environmental science students. In this course students will collect data and perform experiments that demonstrate the principles learned during the lecture. Students will keep a laboratory journal and record the methodology and results of their experiments. Experiments include exercises in cellular respiration, cell division, osmosis and diffusion, animal behavior, and the structure of flowering plants, as well as the exercises in genetics, photosynthesis, nutrient analysis of foods, chromatography, starch digestion, embryology, bacteriology, mitosis and meiosis and enzyme interactions. Students gain experience in the techniques of dissection and analysis of plant and animal specimens. There is a laboratory fee.
