A couple people have asked about this and I haven't seen a complete thread about it so here is what AADSAS considers for BCP (a GPA calculation of your biology, chemistry and physics courses) and for "other science courses" which contribute to your science GPA (includes BCP and other sciences).

Biology:
Examples:Anatomy
Biochemistry (if offered by a biology department)
Biology
Biophysics (if offered by a biology department)
Botany
Genetics
Medicine
Microbiology
Neuroscience
Pathology
Pharmacy/Pharmacology (could also be classified as Chemistry)
Physiology
Zoology

Chemistry:
Examples:Biochemistry (if offered by a chemistry department)
Chemistry
General Chemistry
Inorganic Chemistry
Organic Chemistry

Physics:
Examples:Biophysics (if offered by a physics department)
Physics

Other Science Courses (Other science courses that do not fall under the categories of Biology, Chemistry or Physics)

Examples:Agriculture
Animal Sciences
Astronomy
Audiology
Clinical Sciences
Dental Hygiene
Nutrition
Engineering
Health Technology
Geology
Kinesiology
Mathematics
Nursing
Physical Sciences
Plant Sciences
Sports Sciences


Here are the Non-science courses just incase anyone is still unsure of something.

Non Science Courses (Humanities, Social Sciences, Health Services, Business and miscellaneous courses)

Examples:Anthropology
Art
Behavioral Sciences
Business
Communications
Economics
Education
English
Foreign Languages
Forensic Sciences
Geography
History
Humanities
Music
Physical Education
Political Science
Psychology
Public Affairs/Administration
Public Health
Social Sciences

These are right off of the AADSAS instructions for identifying coursework.

I'm taking an Animal Behavior class offered by the Ecology Dept... I needed and ecology for my Bio major... the AADSAS rep. I talked to said it would be a Bio... although according to your list I would think it would be an other science... I hope its a bio, cause its a nice GPA booster
