Biological Sciences Papers at Tauranga (2018)

Biological Sciences incorporates the major traditional biological disciplines of Botany, Microbiology and Zoology with the interdisciplinary subjects of Biochemistry, Physiology, Genetics, Ecology and Behaviour.

Prospective MSc candidates should discuss their 300 level papers with the Subject Convenor in order to ensure that a suitable number and combination of papers are taken.

Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Biological Sciences major (outside of existing guaranteed credit arrangements), Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. However, please note our new subjects in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Ecology and Biodiversity. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Faculty of Science and Engineering for programme advice.

    BIOL313Applied Freshwater Ecology18A (Hamilton) & 18A (Tauranga)
    An introduction to the ecology of lakes and rivers. Topics covered include the structure and function of major freshwater communities, fish and fisheries, human impacts and the management of inland waters.
    BIOL314Marine Biology and Monitoring18B (Hamilton) & 18B (Tauranga)
    An introduction to the structure and function of marine ecosystems. This paper also covers human impacts on marine environments, including fisheries, as well as the design of ecological surveys and experiments. Field trip and practical classes are integral to the course.
    BIOL324Aquaculture Reproduction and Early Life Stages18B (Tauranga)
    Students will study the under-lying reproductive physiology and developmental biology of early life cycle strategies used by aquatic animal species. This knowledge will be examined for its use in the husbandry, breeding and production of species in aquaculture.
  • Prescriptions for the MPhil

    The Master of Philosophy is a one year research-based degree in which students undertake a programme of approved and supervised research that leads to a thesis which critically investigates an approved topic of substance and significance, demonstrates expertise in the methods of research and scholarship, displays intellectual independence and makes a substantial original contribution to the subject area concerned, and is of publishable quality.
