Botany (BOT)

301 Foundations of Botany (3 - Fall) A study of the structure, function, diversity and significance of photosynthetic organisms from the cyanobacteria through the vascular plants, as well as major representatives of the fungi. Two hours lecture and two hours lab. Prereq: BIOL 110-120.

302 Plant Morphology (3 - Spring) A study of the major groups of photosynthetic organisms with respect to comparative anatomy, reproductive patterns, development, and phylogenetic relationships. Two hours lecture and two hours lab. Prereq: BOT 301 or permission of instructor.
