BIOLOGY 108 - WINTER 2002

Tuesday/Thursday, 1400-1520

GENERAL REMARKS

Materials presented here are to assist you in recognizing and reviewing important points made in lecture. They are specifically designed to complement Lecture Section B2 and will help you to find figures discussed in class and the most relevant reading in the text book (CAMPBELL, REECE & MITCHELL, 5th edition) based on my lectures. I will post outlines here, but they are not complete transcriptions of lecture materials and a good grade in Biology 108 will require attending class and taking your own notes. Topic titles will link you to the study aids that I have prepared especially for my lectures. Printed versions of these same materials will also be available at Cameron Library & the Resource Room.


I will also be posting sample exam questions here, course announcements, and other information. Hard-copies of these notes are also available in the Resource Room M-330 BSC and through the Cameron Library Reserve Reading Desk (FILE 66).
