ZOOLOGY.

*WILLIAM EMERSON RITTER, Ph.D., Professor of Zoology and Director

of San Diego Marine Biological Station. *CHARLES ATWOOD KofoID, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Histology

and Embryology. *HARRY BEAL TORREY, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Zoology. HENRY RICHARDSON LINVILLE, Ph.D., Teacher of Biology, Jamaica

High School, New York City.

1. The Natural History of Animals.

Dr. LINVILLE. The purpose of this course is to study animals in relation to

their environment. Life-activities, life-histories, and the adaptation of structure to function will be important features of the work. Although the treatment of this course will be methodical and scientific, frequent practical application of the facts presented will be made to the teaching of zoology. Laboratory and field work with living animals;

lectures. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 8. 12 East Hall.

2. Zoology for Schools.

Dr. LINVILLE. In this course opportunity will be offered to teachers to carry

on under direction laboratory or field work suitable to their individual needs. Frequent conferences will be held to the end that such individual efforts may proceed with definite purpose.

There will be twelve lectures on the relation of biology to education. The special problems of nature-study and secondary biology will be considered. Attention will be given to the practical contributions which the teaching of biology may make to intellectual, moral, and aesthetic de

velopment. 1 unit. Tu Th, 11. 26 East Hall.

THE MARINE BIOLOGICAL SURVEY.

The Marine Biological Survey that has been in progress for several years on the coast of Southern California by the Department of Zoology will be continued with broadened scope and increased facilities at the La Jolla Station during the coming year.

* At the San Diego Marine Biological Station, La Jolla.

While, as heretofore, the whole time and effort of the staff of the laboratory will have to be devoted to research, a limited number of students sufficiently advanced to be able to work under the guidance of the investigators to the advantage of both themselves and their directors will be gladly admitted

The station will be open from June 1 to August 15. Applications for admission to its privileges for the whole or a part of the season should be sent as early as possible to Professor William E. Ritter, Berkeley, California.

Graduate students who are candidates for higher degrees in the University may, with the approval of the Professor of Zoology, count the time spent at work in the laboratory as university residence for such degrees.

GEOLOGY. 1. Field Geology.

Mr. WOOD. It is proposed to conduct an elementary course in Field Geology in the Sierra either in a district near the summit along the line of the Southern Pacific Railway or in a district near the summit in the vicinity of Mt. Dana and Tuolumne Meadows. Applicants for admission to the course must have completed satisfactorily the work of Geology la and the work of the first term, at least, of Mineralogy 1, or have an equivalent preparation; or otherwise satisfy the instructor of their fitness to enter upon the work.

While designed primarily for students having no previous field training, the course might be taken with profit by students of more advanced grade, for the instruction will be chiefly of an individual character.

Credit not to exceed four units. Students who pass in this course may be excused from Geology 2 if prescribed for them.

Not more than ten students can be admitted; the course will not be given if less than six enroll. No student can be admitted later than June 1.

The regular fee will be charged, and in addition a special fee of five dollars, to cover field expenses.

Other expenses will be railway transportation, the cost of maintenance of camp and commissary and the transportation of supplies. A sum, to be determined later, must be paid in advance to cover these expenses.

Any surplus of this fund will be redistributed. It is estimated that the total cost of the course, including railway transportation and fees, ought not to exceed one hundred dollars in the case of the trip to Mt. Dana, nor seventy-five dollars in the other case.

Students desiring to take the course should consult the instructor, Mr. Wood, at an early date regarding preparations and equipment for the trip.

BOTANY.

WINTHROP J. V. OSTERHOUT, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Botany. 1. Biology of Plants.

Assistant Professor OSTERHOUT. Fundamental laws of biology in their simplest aspect, as illus

trated in plant life; applications to sanitation, hygiene, and agriculture; experiments and methods especially designed for teachers. 2 units. The lectures count as 1 unit and may

be taken separately. M Tu W, 10, and 5 hours' field work to be arranged individually.

22 South Hall. 2. Evolution.

Assistant Professor OSTERHOUT. The essential facts and theories of evolution with especial at

tention to recent discoveries; experimental evolution; applications to plant breeding. 2 units. The lectures count as 1

unit and may be taken separately. M Tu W, 11, and 5 hours' field work to be arranged individually.

22 South Hall. In case credit has already been obtained for Botany 1 or 2

(regular session), additional credit will be given only for field work in Course 1 and for both lectures and field work in Course 2.

SUMMER SCHOOL OF SURVEYING.

CAMP CALIFORNIA, SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA. C. DERLETH, Jr., C.E., Associate Professor of Structural Engineering

and Dean of the College of Civil Engineering. W. C. WILLARD, C.E., Instructor in Civil Engineering, Director of

Summer School of Surveying. A. K. MCCAMPBELL, B.C.E., Instructor in Civil Engineering. At least three additional instructors, a physician, and a commissary

agent will be appointed before May 1, 1908. The Summer School of Surveying is held at a camp established since 1904 on Liddell Creek, Santa Cruz County, within one-quarter mile of the ocean coast; twelve miles porthwest of Santa Cruz on the Southern Pacific and Ocean Shore railroads. Attendance is divided into two sessions on account of the large number of students. In 1907 the total enrollment was 242. It is estimated that the 1908 school will instruct from 200 to 225 persons. The first session begins Thursday, May 14; the second session, Thursday, June 11. Each session is about four weeks in length. The first session accommodates third-year students in the College of Civil Engineering, and a portion of the first-year class of all the Engi.. neering Colleges. The remaining first-year students attend the second session. Students attending the first session leave Berkeley on May 14; those attending the second session, on June 11.

UNIVERSITY FEE. All students attending camp pay a University fee of fifteen dollars. Students attending in a year later than their proper term are charged twenty dollars.

COMMISSARY DEPOSIT. A deposit of thirty dollars is required from each student, to cover expenses incurred for railroad fares, board at camp, student purchases from the camp coöperative department, and fines for injury to instruments or camp equipment. A rebate estimated at five dollars (for students not incurring fines) is returned.

The University fee and commissary deposit must be paid in advance to the Secretary of the University at Berkeley on or before May 2. Receipts for these payments must be shown to the Camp Director on or before arrival at camp.
