During the second round of enrolment, first-year students at any college may enroll if space is available.

Plants As We See Them
The intent of this seminar is to overcome the animal perceptual bias that leads us to see plants simply as part of the landscape, the background upon which the seemingly more interesting animals play out their lives. In the process, students will learn about how plants are put together and how they interact with the physical environment, animals, and each other, and will discover that the lives of plants are eminently suited to their spectacular success on Earth.
