Biology in Year 12 incorporates the nature of genes and inheritance as well as an understanding of how DNA determines our characteristics.  Other topics include animal diversity and transport processes within the cell.  Adaptations of organisms will be considered and this will involve a trip to the rocky shore for an internal assessment. 

The aim of this course is to develop and investigate an understanding of:  Diversity, structure, function and interrelationships of living organisms, and their interactions with the abiotic environment, genetics and evolution, interactions between humans and their environment and how these are influenced by developments in biological knowledge and technology.
