I have worked in the field of wildlife biology for years and have recently switched professions to teaching. One of my biggest concerns with the current biology curriculum is that it seems way too obsessed with it's molecular aspects. I think this over-focus can be extremely harmful to the field of biology for a couple of reasons. 1. It can drive the interest and passion out of a student who might be taking it because of an deep seeded interest in aspects that are more macroscopic (such as a fascination with vertebrate structure and function etc). 2. It lends itself to this to the zealotry and heavy handed dogmatism that some scientists seem to hold so tightly to which, I fear, will both stifle peoples sense of awe and wonder, as well as close future scientists off from exploring new and novel theories and ideas.
