Biology 2 builds on the fundamental concepts of cell structure and function introduced in Biology 1 and provides a theoretical and practical foundation in the biological sciences for both science and non-science students. This course provides a detailed examination of basic animal and plant anatomy, reproduction, physiology and ecology which is essential for further study in biology.
The evolution of animals and the tissue and organ systems of animals are introduced. This is followed by a study of the evolution and classification of plants and the morphology, anatomy, physiology and reproduction of flowering plants. This course contains a highly recommended residential school for external students and highly recommended on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students (non-attendance will mean the student misses both an element for assessment preparation and an element of assessment).
