Three quizzes totaling 45% (15% each) and final lab exam (30%) cover subjects from lectures,
labs, and reading. The final lab exam is a comprehensive exam including all taxa from the
beginning of the course. The exam and quizzes include a wide variety of questions and problems,
some based on taxonomy of the organisms, many based on their anatomy, some based on their
functional biology, natural history, life cycles and host-parasite relationship, some based on
medical significance of parasites and drugs used to cure diseases caused by parasites.
Do not miss the exam. Any make-up exam (by prior arrangement or in dire emergency) consists
of a two hour oral examination covering the same general areas of the written exam.
The remainder of the semester grade is based on the laboratory work (20%) and presentation in
the class on species or taxonomic group of parasites (5%). Guidelines on keeping a notebook
