BIOL 323 - Plant Systematics

HC NSMA
2 credits
How did Earth’s biodiversity attain its current form and distribution? Systematists strive to answer this question by reconstructing the history of organismal diversity using diverse lines of evidence, ranging from anatomy to biogeography to genomics. Lectures introduce important principles and concepts in systematics, including taxonomy, phylogenetics, speciation, and character evolution. Labs provide a hands-on introduction to modern molecular systematics techniques and to plant diversity, through a combination of lab activities and field trips.
Prerequisites & Notes: BIOL 200 or BIOL 103. Co-requisite: BIOL 324.
