Catalog description: "Diversity and classification of angiosperms (flowering plants) on a world scale, and current understanding of the origin of angiosperms and evolutionary relationships and trends within them based on morphological and molecular evidence."
Catalog description: class--"Survey of the invertebrate phyla emphasizing aquatic forms and focusing on morphology, development, natural history, and phylogenetic relationships"; lab--"Field and laboratory experience with representative members of the invertebrate phyla discussed in course 112. Emphasis on comparative morphology, natural history, ecology, and behavior of living invertebrates."
