Abstract

To do any task well, aims and purposes need to be clearly defined. The application of Biology, like many other subjects, is two-fold; professional and cultural. The majority of the students pursuing biological studies in our schools will never make a direct application of this knowledge in a professional way. On the other hand, cultural ideas secured from the field prove just as valuable to the professional biologist as to those who are interested only in broadening their experiences. Cultural interests for all, plus technical excellence for the minority who plan to make definite use of biology in their life work, would then seem to be a wise aim for instructors in biology.
