Report of the Action Committee on Natural Resources.
Dils, R. E.; And Others
This report deals primarily with education in the biological sciences as a part of the training of the natural resource specialist and secondarily with the mathematics and physical science aspects of his training. The first part of the report presents the rationale for the proposed program. The proposal calls for a two-year core program. The first year is to include fundamentals of biology with equal emphasis on the study of plants and animals. The second year includes genetics, physiology and ecology using the concepts and principles of the first year as building blocks. Ecology is stressed as fundamentally important. A suggested outline for study in ecology is presented in the appendix. The report briefly discusses training beyond a two-year program. Recommendations for training in mathematics and the physical sciences are then presented with detailed outlines of the content to be covered in calculus, probability, linear algebra, and biometrics.
