Programme: NIE

Deals with biological processes and concepts that are basic to the understanding of the complex interrelationships between the inorganic and the organic world. After the initial groundwork on soils and their properties, the course will deal with plants, as these are the primary food producers which form the essential link between humans and the physical environment. The course also deals with the reciprocal relationships between biogeographic processes and humans. Field trips and laboratory work are essential to this course.
