This statistical study was prompted by a desire to know more definitely just what courses are being offered in the field of Biology; to gain a better understanding and appreciation of some of the varied problems which are common to the administrative heads of Biology departments; to offer a bird's eye view of curricular content to those students who are looking forward to teaching Biology or administering a department in some college devoted more exclusively to undergraduate rather than graduate study; and to obtain, with some degree of reliability, a standard of comparison for our own department.
