General Biology II is a course on the facts and principles of biology at the introductory level. The course has a mandatory lab that complements the lecture. This course is designed to meet the needs of non-STEM major programs. Topics begin with a study of the mechanisms of evolution. The origin and diversity of life are studied by examining the evolutionary development of organisms in the three domains - Eukarya, Bacteria, and Archaea. Animal structure and function are covered by studying the principles and evolution of each organ system with focus on human systems. This is followed by a study of plant structure and function. The course ends with a study of ecology, including conservation ecology.  4 Credits. Prerequisite: BI 101
