BIOLOGY 221

BOTANY

INTRODUCTION

In this course, Biology of Plants, you will study what a plant is and how it functions as a living organism. By studying plants, you will gain insight into how plants contribute to our knowledge of science and see science as a way of thinking.

Hopefully, with Huxley you will ask:

"What is this world of plants, this world which shares our planet, forming the one life-group whose mode of existence differs so much from all others, without love, shell, muscle, blood, or nerves? ...Plants do many things that we can do and many that we cannot....They were there before us: and today, everywhere we allow it, is the green of the plant world."

A. Huxley

A green world on which we depend for life is worth knowing about!
