|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This subject introduces students to the amazing biodiversity on planet Earth. It provides
an introduction to the genesis and evolution of various life forms across earth's
history, with an emphasis on the major groups of plants and animals. Primarily, we
focus on aspects of their classification, morphology, physiology, behaviour, ecology
and evolution. We also investigate the chemical and cellular basis of life that influences
the form, function and behaviour of these different life forms.
- use and apply fundamental practical techniques for studying plants and animals;
- apply analytical and problem solving skills to investigate and present research on
biology in oral and written modes;
- apply morphological, physiological and behavioural knowledge to whole plant and animal
biology across different ecosystems.
- assignments (60%)
- centrally-administered final exam (40%).
|Students enrolling in this subject should have a good understanding of Chemistry,
Mathematics and English to Grade 12 (Queensland) or equivalent.
