Semester 6

15-312 Community Ecology
34-309 Insects in Relation to Wildlife **
71-319 Fundamentals of Nutrition
*Two electives.

Semester 7

92-407 Animal Behaviour +
92-409 Ornithology
Three or four electives.

Semester 8

15-415 Conservation Biology II
92-428 Mammalogy +
*Three or four electives.

*Lists of suggested electives should be obtained from the Department of Zoology advisors.

**34-311 is equivalent to 34-309 and may be used as an alternative.

92-409 and 92-428 are alternatives, if 92-409 is selected 92-428 need not be taken and vice versa.

Students wishing a combined fish and wild life oriented program can fulfil this objective through the use of electives. In the early semesters, students should select as electives those courses that will be needed as prerequisites for their 7th and 8th semester electives. Recommended aquatic courses include 15-345 and 92-402.
