Does my LOR from my Ecology/Conservation/Biodiversity Professor Count?

Hi!

I am currently having a minor freak out because I am realizing that one of my letters of recommendation may not come from a professor that counts as a traditional "science professor." I've seen it discussed whether or not an ecology professor counts as a "science professor" but not this specific. The course title is called "Conservation of Biodiversity." The course code that my university uses is BIO, and without a doubt the class is an ecology class, consists heavily of reading and interpreting scientific papers, and is objectively a science class. My only question is - will dental schools interpret it that way? Is this something I'm going to have to call the schools I'm applying to and ask them specifically? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Technically, it's science. It's an entry-division biology course it feels, but it counts. As usual, ask the schools.
