BIOL 110 - Botany
4 credit (3 lecture, 2 lab) 5 contact hours [Reading Level 3 and Writing Level 3 and Math Level 2 ]
This course is a survey of the Fungi and Plant Kingdoms and their natural communities. Plant structure, classification, and function will be studied through class and outdoor lab experiences, both on and off campus. Students will build a representative botanical collection from local flora, with emphasis on the Angiosperms (flowering plants). Students will observe and record the phenology (seasonal rhythm) of selected deciduous plants. Students will contribute to the scientific body of botanical knowledge through maintenance of the existing MCC Herbarium, and through the inventory and preservation of specimens found in an assigned Montcalm County public site. This class includes field trips with outdoor activity and possible inclement weather.
