This study aims to describe prospective biology teachers' science process skills in plant cell material. Components of basic process skills such as (1) observing, (2) connecting, and (3) inference, and integrated process skills such as (4) analysis, (5) hypothesis, and (6) defining variables operationally, become the science process skills components examined in this study. This research is a descriptive-quantitative study with survey method to identify science process skills of 100 prospective biology teacher (50 male and 50 female). Fifteen item tests on plant cell material were used to collect data on science process skills of the prospective teacher who was first empirically validated before use. The results showed that the science process skills of biology teacher in IKIP Mataram were significantly different on the components of (1) observed (p < 0.05), (2) inference (p < 0.05), and (3) analysis (p < 0.05), wheres the science process skills of prospective biology teacher are generally in the moderate category (60.38).
