BIOL 050 - Introduction to Biology I
This course deals with the scientific method, the chemical and physical background for biology, plant tissues, microscopy, plant nutrition, movement and transport, basic genetics, animal behaviour, evolution, ecology, photosynthesis, cell division, and the classification of living organisms and viruses. Biology 050 is articulated with B.C. and Alberta Advanced Biology courses and is a prerequisite for Biology 060 (which could lead to a university biology program) as well as for the Renewable Resources program at Yukon College.
Students must also register in the mandatory lab component of the course, BIOL 050L.
