Introductory lectures complement direct field observations and experiments, data collection and analysis. The course is taught primarily in the field. It is intended for both science majors and non-majors. Students are limited to taking four field study courses in life sciences (BIO 61 , BIO 102 , BIO 103, BIO 64 , BIO 65 , or BIO 69 ) for a maximum of 5 units. BIO 63 was formerly offered as BIO 103.
