Administrative history

The Department of Biology has been in operation since the University opened in 1964. Programs of study lead to single and joint-major, three-year and four-year science degrees. Many students do joint majors in Anthropology, Chemistry, Environmental and Resource Science, Geography or Psychology. Faculty members of the Department also supervise graduate students in the Watershed Ecosystems Graduate Program within which one may study toward an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This collection of papers was received from Professor Roy Edwards in 1987.

The word Turtle was derived from Trent University Research and Teaching Laboratory for Exper­imental Work. The materials cover the years 1968-1973.
