Abstract

Quantitative and qualitative analyses of prescribed standard eight biology textbooks are discussed in relation to the teaching of the ecology syllabus, an area which is very important in understanding the bio-physical aspect of environmental education. The analysis identifies some of the problems of relying solely on prescribed texts for instruction and considers some of the facets that need to be addressed in the compilation of texts for use by teachers and pupils.
