Credits: 9

Marine Invertebrate Zoology is designed to provide advanced
undergraduates, post-baccalaureates and graduate students with
comprehensive exposure to the subject of invertebrate zoology. Students
will learn about the diversity, taxonomy, ecology, evolution, structure,
and function of invertebrates. We will cover all animal phyla from
Annelida to Xenacoelomorpha and explore diversity within phyla based on
the rich marine biota of the San Juan Islands. Students will learn about
the field of invertebrate zoology in light of information gained through
the use of traditional tools like electron microscopy and histology as
well as new tools like genomics and evolutionary developmental biology
(“evo-devo”). If you like going to zoos and aquariums, you should like
this course! Most of the time of the course will be spent focusing on the
study of living animals in the laboratory and field. Prior coursework in
invertebrate biology or animal diversity is preferred but not required;
if in doubt, please contact one of the instructors. Enrollment is limited
to 20 students.
