BIOLOGY 1-2

Welcome to Biology!! I hope all my students enjoy the experience of science and leave my class with something learned. I have been teaching science at Wilson since 2001 and have been with the Park Avenue program since it started.

Over the school year we will study 6 major units. Ecology, Cell Biology, Genetics, Evolution, Physiology and Animal Diversity. I will work to make my class as interesting as possible, and I know all my students will find something fascinating in their time with me!!

As a result of the coordinated structures and functions of organ systems, the internal environment of the human body remains relatively stable

The biosphere is populated with multiple species of both vertebrates and invertebrates

Stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects

ECOLOGY
Stability in an ecosystem is a balance between competing effects

Evolution is the result of genetic changes that occur in constantly changing environments
