BIOL 112 - Ethnobotany with Lab
Examination of human uses of plants and the cultural/societal origins of usage. Plants for medicine and health, food, beverage, protection, aesthetics, and recreation will be discussed. Basic concepts in cell biology, genetics, plant taxonomy/ identification, plant anatomy, and plant physiology typical of Introductory Biology for non-majors courses will be covered. Through the lab, students will gain experience that will reinforce concepts from lecture. Students will work through the scientific method and use some of the basic tools used in the study of science. There will be opportunities for students to work through open-ended laboratory experiences. Does not apply toward a major or minor in biology.
