Course description from the course outline: From the origin of life on earth through the evolution of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms this course examines the diversity of life on earth. Using a phyletic approach to classification, the major taxonomic groups of organisms are introduced. These include prokaryotes, numerous protists, plants, fungi, and animals. Features that adapt these organisms to their environment are emphasized using Darwinian evolution as the underlying principle.
