AGR 105 : Botany Lecture

This course serves as an introduction to the fundamental principles of botany and explores the diversity, form, and function of vascular and nonvascular plants. It will provide a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany while retaining the important focus of natural selection, analysis of botanical phenomena, and diversity. Students are first introduced to topics they are more familiar with such as plant structure. The course will proceed to those topics which are less familiar including plant physiology and development and conclude with topics that are likely least familiar to the introductory student like genetics, evolution, and ecology.
