BIO 3020 - Field Zoology

This course investigates the local animal groups with a particular emphasis on protozoa, molluscs, arthropods, and vertebrates. The lectures include taxonomy, life history of selected types—including economically important kinds-modes of adaptation to the environment, and zoogeography. The combined laboratory/field approach includes the study of identification, preparation and collection techniques, structure, observations of behavior, and local distribution. Students make a collection or do an elementary field project. The course requires two classroom hours and one three-hour lab per week.

Prerequisites & Notes
