Did you know that the largest organism in the world is a set of aspen trees in Utah that share the same root system? Or at least it could be. Depending on how you define what constitutes a single living system, the Great Barrier Reef might be the largest, or it could be a 2,200-acre fungus in Oregon. And that doesn’t even ask the question of how you even define life itself. Is a virus alive – and does that have any bearing on how we might stop it from spreading?
As a biology minor, you’ll be able to study and explore practical studies of living things through courses of your choosing in organismal biology, ecology/evolution, cell biology and genetics.
