Botany is a survey course of the plant kingdom with an emphasis on terrestrial and aquatic plant anatomy, physiology, phylogeny, classification, diversity, development, and ecology. Concentration in the terrestrial plants will center on vascular plants (flowers, trees, shrubs, grasses, and herbs) but will include the nonvascular mosses and ferns. Concentration in the aquatic plants will center on algae, kelp, and phytoplankton. Commercial, medical and forensic uses of plants as well as botanical science careers and ecological issues will be explored. Virtual and/or lab dissections and field work and special projects are required. Prerequisite: Biology I.
