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, one three-hour lab per week.
