Biological Sciences Papers at Tauranga (2020)
Biological Sciences incorporates the major traditional biological disciplines of Botany, Microbiology and Zoology, with the interdisciplinary subjects of Biochemistry, Physiology, Genetics, Ecology and Behaviour.
Note: From 2018 the Biological Sciences major/subject will be replaced with the two majors/subjects, Ecology & Biodiversity and Molecular & Cellular Biology at the Hamilton campus. It will still be available as a major for the BSc in Tauranga by first enrolling with Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology. This means there will be no new enrolments in the Biological Sciences major/subject (outside of existing guaranteed credit arrangements), Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma from 2018. You will need to check Ecology & Biodiversity and Molecular & Cellular Biology for the papers offered in what was Biological Sciences. Students enrolled in 2017 or prior should consult the Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science for programme advice.
For a full list of offerings in this subject, including those available in Hamilton and online, see the Catalogue of Papers. Not all qualifications and subjects can be taken in full in Tauranga. See what can be studied in Tauranga.

Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location AQCUL201 Invertebrate and Algal Aquaculture 20A (Tauranga) This paper will introduce key taxa of invertebrates and algae used in aquaculture, focusing on the biology and physiology of their lifecycles, and common husbandry methods. Particular emphasis will be given to species of relevance to the NZ industry. AQCUL202 Fish Aquaculture 20B (Tauranga) This paper will introduce key fish species cultured around the world, with a focus on the biology and physiology of their lifecycle as well as common husbandry methods. Particular emphasis will be given to species of relevance to the New Zealand industry. BIOEB203 Animal Structure and Function 20A (Hamilton) & 20A (Tauranga) This paper is an integrated theoretical and experimental study of the principles of animal structure and function. Comparative aspects will be emphasised in how animals adapt to their environment. Topics covered include homeostasis, the function of major organ systems, ecophysiology, musculoskeletal design and locomotion. An introd...
Code Paper Title Occurrence / Location BIOEB303 Terrestrial Ecology 20A (Hamilton) & 20A (Tauranga) This paper explores ecological theory to understand the dynamics, functioning, and restoration of terrestrial ecosystems in New Zealand and across the globe. Labs, workshops, and a weekend field trip are core components of this paper. BIOEB304 Freshwater Ecology 20A (Hamilton) & 20A (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. BIOEB305 Marine Ecology 20B (Hamilton) & 20B (Tauranga) An introduction to the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems. The paper explores the fundamentals of ecology (e.g. disturbance/recovery, recruitment, organism interactions with their environment, nutrient cycles, limits on productivity) in a marine setting. We also cover human impacts on marine environments including fishe...
