Prerequisite: BIO 181 and BIO 183
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
An introduction for Life Science majors to the ecology, structure, function, processes, reproduction and evolution of higher plants. Students may not receive credit for both PB 200 and PB 250.

Prerequisites: The prerequisites for PB 250 have always been BIO 181 and 183 but for unknown reasons were only listed in the catalog description and therefore unenforceable. The proposed revision makes the prerequisites official and enforceable.


Catalog Description: BO is being changed to PB to reflect the current prefix for Plant Biology courses.
