BIO 118H Honor Biology: Explorations in Botany

3 Credit(s) SR


A focus on local plants, both native and introduced, and what they tell us about our environment and culture. A combination of hands-on, analytical, and interdisciplinary projects will explore topics such as the history of botany, varieties of botanical collections (such as botanical gardens, conservatories, herbaria, and seed banks), the lives and work of expert amateurs and professional botanists who have built botanical knowledge, and the many communities that benefited from that knowledge. Three lecture hours per week, which may include field trips.

Pre-/Co-Requisites:  Open only to students in the Honors Program. Not open to Biology majors. Not open to students who have completed BIO115H, BIO117H, or BIO116H.
