This course has a mandatory, five-day supervised lab component (usually offered in Athabasca during the summer months). Check dates and locations of supervised lab prior to registering for this course.

Students who do not require an onsite laboratory component to meet transfer credit requirements may consider taking BIOL 205 (which has home labs only, no supervised lab component) instead of BIOL 207. Please note, however, that BIOL 207 is a required course for Athabasca University students in Science programs and cannot be substituted with BIOL 205. (Exceptions: Students in the Bachelor of Science (Post Diploma) program who have successfully completed a biology lab component and students in the Biology Minor program)

Athabasca University reserves the right to amend course outlines occasionally and without notice. Courses offered by other delivery methods may vary from their individualized study counterparts.
