BIOL 153L. General Biology II (BIOL 153) is the second of a two-part series that introduces Biology majors to general concepts, fundamental principles, and basic details of the natural sciences.  General Biology II deals with plants and groups traditionally placed with plants such as bacteria, fungi, and other photosynthetic organisms.  The course focuses primarily on plant structure, function, operation, evolution, and systematics. BIOL 153L is the lab that accompanies BIOL 153.
