2002 Second Web Reports
On Serendip


Biology, 2002

Students were expected, in lieu of midterm examinations, to select topics of interest to themselves and write a short paper based on exploration of materials available on the web. As elsewhere on Serendip, these are intended not as the final word on any topic but rather as expressions of the interests and perspectives of individuals and as windows to available information and perspectives available elsewhere.
