For over a quarter century, Professors Spencer Barrett and James Thomson of the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology in the Faculty of Arts & Science have been the two of the first teachers students encounter when they begin their undergraduate education at U of T. Both are retiring in 2018 and recently delivered their final lectures in the foundational course Adaptation and Biodiversity commonly known as BIO120.
