Approved Courses

The following lists specify the courses that may be taken toward fulfillment
of the biology core requirements. If a course appears in more than one area,
it may used to fill only one area requirement.

[PL] = Course that fulfills the "plant course" requirement.

[Lab] = Course that fulfills the "lab or field component" requirement.
