A panel discussion on "Biology in the next two decades" is reported. Panelists identified significant questions at various levels of biological inquiry (cellular, organ and tissue, organismal, population, and behavioral) and speculated about means for answering them. The necessity for relating information between levels was stressed. A distinction was made between questions significant for developing biological generalizations and those significant for the solution of social problems. Much concern was shown for population and environmental problems and discussants agreed that survival is likely to be the major question in the next twenty years. Two articles about journal literature relevant to biological education at the college level include an annotated bibliography of selected journals. An innovative multimedia program in general botany for non-science majors is also described. (EB)
