BIOL 23 Plant Biology and Human Health

This course provides a general survey of the plant kingdom from the level of molecules to plant diversity. The course has four themes: (1) exploring the origin and diversification of plants in an ecological and phylogenetic context, (2) understanding plant form and function, (3) learning representative plant families and genera, and (4) investigating the human health effects of plants. The lab emphasizes the anatomy and physiology of plants, species interactions, plants and human health, and using keys and manuals to identify plants, especially New England species, in the greenhouse and on local field trips. Students must develop a plant collection of 20 species for the course.  No student may receive course credit for both BIOL 23 and BIOL 54.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
