Does it help a college student taking botany to have had a course in high school biology? "Why are you taking botany?" That was one of the questions asked a class of forty-two students at Iowa Wesleyan College during their first class meeting of elementary Botany in September of 947. Many indicated that they were taking it to fulfill their eight hour science requirement for graduation, and some of these indicated interest in nature and biology. Twelve out of the forty-two were definitely biology majors or minors.
