Biology 2e is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology includes rich features that engage students in scientific inquiry, highlight careers in the biological sciences, and offer everyday applications. The book also includes various types of practice and homework questions that help students understand—and apply—key concepts. The 2nd edition has been revised to incorporate clearer, more current, and more dynamic explanations, while maintaining the same organization as the first edition. Art and illustrations have been substantially improved, and the textbook features additional assessments and related resources.

In this course, you will learn the basics of plant biology. The student will begin with plant anatomy, learning the names and functions of all of the parts of a plant, then move on to plant physiology, where you will learn about photosynthesis, growth, and reproduction. Next, the student will study plant evolution according to the fossil record and examine the diversity of plant life in existence today and how that diversity impacts global ecology. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: identify and describe the functions of the different cells, tissues, and organs that make up a plant; describe the major life processes in plants (photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration, growth and development, and reproduction) at the tissue, organ, cellular, and molecular level; explain the history and evolution of plants on earth; discuss plant diversity and identify the major characteristics of plant phylogenetic divisions; explain how plants fit into the global ecological system and why they are essential for life on earth.

OER Course for General Biology II Laboratory - Science Majors
Unrestricted Use

Rating

Welcome to the OER Activity Pool for a General Biology II laboratory Due to COVID, the nature of the labs has shifted from face-to-face to a virtual/online format. The instructors have pivoted and began to develop virtual lab modules. Over the next year, they will continue to update and develop both face-to-face and virtual labs.Two faculty members have worked to create a repository of materials that can be used in place of a textbook, photo atlas, and lab manual. The faculty members are working on the exercises to create alternative laboratory exercises for each content piece.  The content is constantly being updated to reflect revisions based on student feedback and student data analysis. The objectives for each exercise align with the majority of the publisher's Student Learning Objectives. The material is organized by content (subject matter) in modules. Each Module will contain 1) the different versions of the exercises 2) Teacher Material and 3) Student Material
