HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 10 April.

List of the decrees:



Decree (1): Fee liability of
students reading Law with Law Studies in Europe

Explanatory note

Attention has been drawn to the fact that there is no
provision in the regulations covering fees payable by
students reading Law with Law Studies in Europe. This is
a four-year course with one year abroad, as in the case
of Modern Languages. The following decree places these
students on an equal footing with those in an equivalent
position.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Examination Decrees,
1997, p. 1094, l. 29, after `outside Oxford' insert `, or
for Law with Law Studies in Europe,'.

2 Ibid., p. 1099, l. 31, after
`outside Oxford,' insert `or for Law with Law Studies in
Europe,'.

Decree (2): Definition of `home'
students for fee purposes

Explanatory note

The amended Education (Fees and Awards) Regulation 1997
includes new provisions for the definition of persons
entitled to be charged university composition fees at the
appropriate `home' rate. Although there have been few
changes in substance (most notably that requiring persons
to be `settled' within the meaning of the Immigration Act
1971), the drafting has been substantially altered. The
new text is reproduced in the following decree.

Text of Decree (2)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, delete from p.
1101, l. 45 to p. 1103, l. 24 and substitute:

(a) has been informed in writing by a person

(b) has been granted leave to enter or remain
accordingly, and

(c) has been ordinarily resident in the
United Kingdom and Islands throughout the period since he

(b) meets the residence conditions referred
to in paragraph 9.

(2) For the purposes of this paragraph `parent'
includes a guardian, any other person having parental
responsibility for a child, and any person having care of
a child, and `child' shall be construed accordingly.

9. The residence conditions referred to above are that

    BOARD OF THE FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL
    SCIENCES: SUB-FACULTY OF BIOLOGY


    Honour School of Natural
    Sciences—Biological Sciences 1999

    Under the terms of the regulations for the above examination
    (Examination Decrees, 1997, pp. 412–15) the
    Sub-faculty of Biology has approved the following topics for
    extended essays in Part A of the Honour School examinations in
    1999.

    Animal Biology


    1

    Do Tinbergen's `four questions' apply to areas of biology other
    than behaviour?

    2 What factors shape the reproductive
    strategies of animals?

    3 Write an essay on the integrative action
    of the nervous system.

    4 How are skeletal and muscular elements of
    different animals integrated to carry out specific locomotor
    tasks?

    5 Discuss how nutritional systems reflect
    compromises between the simultaneous requirements for multiple
    nutrients.

    Plant and Microbial Biology


    1

    Discuss how transgenic plants have increased our understanding
    of metabolic processes in plants.

    2 Should we be taking action to conserve
    bacterial biodiversity?

    3 Plants have had to evolve a distinct set
    of mechanisms to compensate for an immobile lifestyle. Discuss
    these mechanisms with respect to the generation of plant form,
    plant growth, plant reproduction, and acquisition of resources.
    Make particular reference to how such mechanisms may be similar
    or dissimilar to mechanisms that have evolved in animals.

    4 Trace the evolution of the life history of
    extant angiosperms and describe the selective pressures that have
    led to the most significant changes.

    5 Write an essay on the potential of using
    plants as biorefineries.

    Environmental Biology


    1

    Brancaster County Council have been asked to give planning
    permission for a new light industrial estate on an area of
    heathland adjacent to a small county town. You have been asked
    to assess the conservation value of this area. Prepare a detailed
    proposal describing how you would go about doing this. Your
    proposal should include a work-plan, a budget, and a list of
    outputs.

    2 What are the principal ways in which humans
    have an environmental impact?

    3 How would aliens know that there is life
    on Earth if they could not visit us?

    4 In what ways can phylogenetic information
    be informative in ecology?

    5 Contrast absolute and relative methods of
    population measurement.

    Cell and Developmental Biology


    1

    Describe how advances in microscopy technique have increased
    our understanding of cell biology.

    2 Cells are extraordinarily complex dynamic
    structures. Why don't they go wrong more often?

    3 Much research in cell biology is funded
    with a view to understanding human biology and treating human
    disease: why then is so much of the research performed on fungi
    such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and
    Schizosaccharomyces pombe?

    4 `No man is an island' (Thomas Merton).
    Discuss the extent to which individual cells within a
    multicellular eukaryote are independent of one another.

    5 Compare the mechanisms that are used to
    ensure that proteins and RNAs end up in their correct cellular
    location.

    Biology of Animal and Plant Disease


    1

    Compare and contrast current and future control practices for
    micro- and macro-parasites.

    2 Does the gene-for-gene theory apply equally
    to animal and plant systems?

    3 Discuss the parasite-altered behaviour in
    plants and animals—consider single and multiple host
    systems.

    4 Do plants and animals rely equally on
    innate and adaptive immunity?

    5 Explore the uses and limitations of the
    concept of the basic reproductive number (R0) of a
    parasitic infection with reference to vector-borne parasite
    systems.
