The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 50



Instruction in Entomology is given almost entirely by means of lectures, for which the large collection of insects in the University Museum affords a valuable [unclear: leans] of illustration. By the aid of the microscope, the student is shown the [unclear: peculiarities] of insect anatomy; and he receives instruction in insect transformation and typical forms, classification and geographical distribution. Especial [unclear: prominence] is given to the life history and habits of injurious species, and the methods [unclear: of] checking their ravages.

Students in the course in Agriculture receive instruction in Bee-keeping by a [unclear: special] course of lectures, and are made familiar with the work by practice in the apiary.
