209. Special Topics.


The opportunity is offered for properly prepared students to pursue the individual study of such topics as they may select subject to the approval of one of the instructors. This would involve original study, with a report satisfactory to the instructor concerned. This may be the beginning of research work that may serve as a basis for the master's thesis.

DANIEL W. MOREHOUSE, M.S., Instructor in Astronomy.

1. Elements of Astronomy.


An introductory course, giving the facts and principles underlying the science of astronomy in all its branches, fundamental problems of practical astronomy, latitude, time, longitude; our knowledge of the solar system, the sun, planets, comets; the nature of stellar systems; the stars, clusters, nebulae; recent progress in modern astronomy. 2 units.

M Tu W Th F, 9. 1 Observatory.

2. Practice Course in the Use of Astronomical Instruments.

Mr. MOREHOUSE. Supplement to course 1. Practice in observing and use of astronomical instruments. 6 hours. 1 unit.

The observatory is open for this course one evening and one afternoon per week. The course is open to students who are taking or have taken course 1 or its equivalent. The number admitted will be limited.

103. Teachers' Course.


Discussion of methods of teaching the fundamental principles of elementary astronomy in the high school; methods of conducting observing classes in the high school with or without astronomical instruments; practical work in observing with the instruments of the observatory. Intended to meet the increasing demand for teachers in the science of astronomy in secondary schools. 2 units. Three lectures and one observing period per week. Hours to be arranged when the class meets for organization, Monday, June 24th, at 10 o'clock. 11 Observatory. Open to students who are taking or have taken course 1 or its equivalent.


HARLEY P. CHANDLER, B.S., Instructor in Botany, Principia School, St.

Louis, Missouri.

THOMAS H. GOODSPEED, A.B., Assistant in Botany.

1. Elementary Plant Physiology.


Experimental investigation of the fundamental life processes of the plant, with especial reference to the development of the plant under the influence of internal and external factors. Laboratory work with informal lectures. Laboratory fee, $2.50. 2 units.

M Tu W Th F, 8. 8 Botany Building.

2. Advanced Plant Physiology.


Taking up in detail-(1) metabolic processes in the vegetable organism; (2) problems of developmental physiology, and (3) the transformation of energy. Special emphasis upon the influence of external conditions on growth and formation, heredity and variation and paratonic movements. Illustrated lectures and demonstration experiments. 2 units.

M Tu W Th F, 9. 8 Botany Building.

Courses 1 and 2 taken together will be considered as the equivalent of Botany 2 in the regular sessions. Either course may be taken separately with the unit values above noted.

3. Elementary Study of Flowering Plants.


Laboratory studies, supplemented by recitations, lectures, and field work. The course is intended to acquaint the student with the principal plant structures and with certain modifications of these for special functions. Material for study will be selected from the native flora and from the Botanical Garden of the University. Laboratory fee, $2.50. 2 units.

M Tu W Th F, 10. 2 Botany Building.

4. California Flora.

Mr. CHANDler.

Training in the classification of California plants with the aid of local flora, and keys. The course should enable a student to find the names of all but the most difficult flowering plants unaided and to

recognize at sight representatives of the more important plant families. If a sufficient number express a desire for it before the opening of the Summer Session, arrangements will be made to secure plants for study from Southern California. Prerequisite: elementary knowledge of the principal structures of flowering plants. Laboratory fee, $2.50. 2 units.

M Tu W Th F, 11. 2 Botany Building.

5. Yosemite Flora.


Field studies upon the classification, ecology, and zonal distribution of the flowering plants and ferns of Yosemite Valley. To be given only in case a sufficient number apply to the instructor by June 28. The class will leave Berkeley August 3 and return August 17, spending the equivalent of three hours daily in study. In connection with the work, excursions will be made to points of interest in and about the Valley. Special arrangements will probably be made for reduced railroad fare and accommodations at one of the permanent camps. The total expense, including railroad and stage fare, board, and the special tuition fee of $5.00, will probably be between $40 and $50. University credit may be given to regular members of the Summer Session who comply with special requirements. Persons having no previous knowledge of Botany may take the course as auditors, but those seeking University credit must have had course 3 or 4 or its equivalent.
