BIO 111 - Energy of Life: Cells to Ecosystems (3)

Prerequisite: BIO 110  or concurrent enrollment or permission.
This course will introduce students to concepts of energetics across various biological systems. Students will consider the roles of chemical gradients and bonds in energy acquisition by living systems and conversion and storage of energy across biological scales from individual molecular interactions through whole ecosystem energy flow. Students will become familiar with the relationship between structure and function of biological molecules, organisms and ecosystems as they pertain to their roles in energy utilization.
