The Biology Department was established in B. P. Baria Science Institute, Navsari in the year 1946. Till the year 1968, Biology was taught in F. Y. B. Sc. (Botany and Zoology ) and zoology as a subsidiary subject in S. Y. B. Sc. Later on, looking to the demand and scope of the subject, the college obtained the approval in 1968 to offer degree course in the subject of Zoology and the first batch of B. Sc. ( Zoology ) from our college passed out in the year 1970.
A majority of the students graduating from the department are well placed and the rest of them have progressed to do their PG and Ph. D.’s and are active in the teaching and research.
The department has well-experienced, devoted and efficient teaching staff and fully competent administrative staff. The number of students opting for Zoology as their principal subject has been encouraging. The department has good infrastructural facilities, and is spread over an area of 7513 sq. ft ( i.e.697.95 sq. m ) and has spacious and well equipped laboratories. The department has separate laboratories for F. Y. B. Sc, S. Y. B. Sc and T. Y. B. Sc. students. The department has a rich museum, which benefits not only our students, but also students from other institutions and high schools.
