BIOL 024: Biology and Society

Karl Fath, Corinne Michels and PoKay Ma

(Submission #117)

Course Description

Biology and Society is a non major lecture course focusing on selected biological principles in genetics, development, evolution, physiology, and ecology that are discussed in context of their impact on various aspects of human society. The approach throughout is to provide a scientific background of biological principles and processes and then relate them to human society in the most global sense. The controversial and ethical considerations of many situations, such as genetic testing, pollution influences on developmental disabilities and humanitarian aid in overpopulation crises, are considered.
