Undergraduate Courses

Course for non-majors that uses vegetation differences among Georgia’s physiographic provinces as a framework for understanding how living systems function and the interaction of science and society. There is an emphasis on conservation issues, including invasive species and climate change.…

Impact of fungi on human affairs. Historical and current uses of fungi by humans as well as the roles of fungi in various ecosystems.
 

Biological concepts that are pertinent to the ecology and evolution of plants, focusing on the most attractive reproductive structure of plants-flowers! Topics will include the morphology, structures, functions, and diversity of flowering plants. Class format is highly interactive. Students will…

Historical and contemporary significance of herbs, spices, and medicinal plants in human culture and commerce; chemical and biological characteristics; commercial production techniques; application in modern and traditional medical systems.

This course will be taught 95% or more online.…

Structure and function of plant cells, their membranes, cell walls, organelles and tissues; energy transduction and signalling mechanisms; regulation of gene expression in response to the environment, tissue interactions, hormones and during development; developmental programs and their controls…

Examination of distribution and abundances of plant species at the individual, population, community, and ecosystem scales, including global patterns, and the role of interactions of plants with their environment and other organisms.

An intensive, inquiry-based laboratory course emphasizing experimental design and the acquisition of technical skills commonly used in biology laboratories. Students will work as a group on a self-contained research project focusing on either the molecular genetics or on the evolution, ecology,…

Supervised work experience with a natural history collection. Students will learn techniques and other procedures for curating materials in a collection of their choice under the direction of collection personnel.

Students will maintain regular, weekly work schedules totaling 7 hours per…

Survey of the wealth of information arising from genomic research conducted on diverse species across the tree of life. Students will explore the evolutionary diversification of genomes in phylogenetically remote organisms and refine critical thinking and technical writing skills through…

Examination of the diversity of plant-animal interactions from an ecological (population, community), evolutionary (phylogeny, adaptation), and mechanistic (structure-function, interaction dynamics, development) perspective.
 

Designed for students to learn how modern problems in medicine, agriculture, and biology are solved using big data “omics.” Topics include comparative gene and genome sequence analyses, transcriptomics, metabolomics, phylogenomics, and application of these approaches in medical, agricultural,…

History of taxonomy, nomenclature, characters, identification principles, classification, taxonomic relationships, taxonomic literature, species biology, collecting and herbarium, floristic studies.

Introduces computational techniques to students who are new to programming or do not regularly program using examples from plant science. In doing so, the course introduces basic simulation techniques and imaging techniques that can be specialized and further developed in higher level graduate…

Faculty-supervised independent or collaborative inquiry into fundamental and applied problems within a discipline that requires students to gather, analyze, and synthesize and interpret data and to present results in writing and other relevant communication formats.
