This introductory course defines biology and its relationship to other sciences. We examine the overarching theories of life from biological research and also explore the fundamental concepts and principles of the study of living organisms and their interaction with the environment. We will examine how life is organized into hierarchical levels; how living organisms use and produce energy; how life grows, develops, and reproduces; how life responds to the environment to maintain internal stability; and how life evolves and adapts to the environment. Topics Covered: Recurrent Themes in Biology; The Method of Scientific Inquiry; Introductions to: Biological Chemistry, Organic Molecules, Cell Theory, Metabolism, Genetics, Ecology, and Evolution.
