If you are unable to meet a course requirement due to illness or other serious circumstances, you must provide valid medical or other supporting documentation to the Dean's office as soon as possible and contact your instructor immediately. It is the student's responsibility to make alternative arrangements with their instructor once the accommodation has been approved and the instructor has been informed. In the event of a missed final exam, a "Recommendation of Special Examination" form must be obtained from the Dean's Office immediately.
For further information please see: http://www.uwo.ca/univsec/handbook/appeals/medical.pdf
A student requiring academic accommodation due to illness, should use the Student Medical Certificate when visiting an off-campus medical facility or request a Record's Release Form (located in the Dean's Office) for visits to Student Health Services. The form can be found here:
The Faculty of Science site www.uwo.ca/sci also has an undergrad page leading to counseling and the appropriate forms.
Selected Topics in Biology - Rotating Courses (we anticipate)
Biology 3222F Molecular Ecology
Prerequisite: 0.5 FCE in Biology at the 2200 level or above – (recommended Bio 2483A and 2581B)
How many grizzly bears live in our National Parks? Are the wolves of Algonquin Park really wolves? Is that expensive fish on your plate really a red snapper? These are examples of questions that are being addressed every day by researchers in the field of Molecular Ecology. In this course, we will examine the use of genetic and molecular tools to address ecological questions. We will cover basic theory, learn about techniques and analytical approaches, and discuss many interesting and current examples. This course will improve your understanding and appreciation of both ecology and molecular biology, and is appropriate for students in either stream. The course will involve a combination of lectures and student-led seminars and discussions. Evaluation will include essay writing and oral presentations.
Biology 3224F-Biology of Bats
on line course with a virtual lab
Prerequisite: 0.5 FCE in Biology at the 2200 level or above (recommended Bio 2483A)
Biology of bats, from biodiversity to echolocation, behaviour to physiology and ecology. An on line course designed to introduce students to the topic of bats using a combination of lectures, case studies and laboratory exercises. The course will consist of 12 lecture units and 6 lab units. There will be a mid term and a final exam (essay format), as well as two assigned essays. Learn how to identify bats, how to catch them, how to recognize them by their echolocation calls.
Statistics 2244A/B is equivalent to Biology 2244A/B-soon the Academic Calendar will be updated to reflect this change.
Biology 2601A Physiology of Organisms
Replaces Bio 2660A/B and 2672A/B as the “physiology requirement” Currently it is only offered in the First Term.
Biology 3660B requires prerequisites of 2660A/B or Bio 2601A
Biology 4300G – Selected Topics in Cell Biology-this year Stem Cells.
Prerequisites: Biology 3316A and Biology 3338A
Biology 4355F – Biology of Aging
Prerequisite: Biology 3316A
Biology 4944G – Seminar in Ecology and Evolution
Completion of at least 1.5 Biology courses at the 3000-level or above (Bio 2483 and Bio 2486 recommended) and registration in Year 4 of an Honors Specialization in Biology.
Courses Not Offered This Year
Biology 2404A – Changing Plant Communities of Ontario
