Abstract:Biology and Society is a non major lecture course focusing on selected
biological principles in genetics, development, evolution, physiology, and
ecology that are discussed in context of their impact on various aspects of
human society. The approach throughout is to provide a scientific background of
biological principles and processes and then relate them to human society in
the most global sense. The controversial and ethical considerations of many
situations, such as genetic testing, pollution influences on developmental
disabilities and humanitarian aid in overpopulation crises, are considered.
