BIO-109 Biology of Reproduction

This course provides an overview of major topics in reproductive biology that include sex differentiation, male and female anatomy, environmental factors that influence reproduction, contraception, and the hormonal control of different stages of reproduction such as puberty (sexual maturation), reproductive cycles, pregnancy and childbirth. The course primarily focuses on human reproduction but other animal groups will be discussed when appropriate. NOTE: When the laboratory (BIO-109L)is offered with this course, it is a required corequisite course; the combination of the lecture and laboratory will fulfill the laboratory requirement of the human biology and natural science minors. Corequisite: BIO-109L


3 credits


BIO-109L must be taken concurrently with BIO-109.
