Commission on Undergraduate Education in the Biological Sciences Newsletter, Volume 7 Number 4.
Commission on Undergraduate Education in the Biological Sciences, Washington, DC.
Three articles in this newsletter describe investigative laboratory programs; two in marine or coastal biology (Hopkins Marine Station and the Bahamas field station of Earlham College), and the other a botany course at Colorado College. In all cases undergraduate students are expected to plan and conduct biological research, after being presented with sufficient content work to provide a meaningful background for their own original research. The form of this initial instruction varies between the three programs described, with Colorado College providing instructional packages which students may take at their own pace, and the other two including formal lectures or seminars. The newsletter also contains reviews of two books concerned with the interface between chemistry and biology, a report of a CUEBS Minicourse on Modules, notes on visual aids, and comments on mathematics for biologists.
