Develops an advanced integrative understanding of morphology, anatomy, physiology, adaptations, evolution, lift history, and systematics of invertebrate animals. Major trends in invertebrate evolution will be used to illustrate current thought in phylogeny and systematics. Current research, collections and museum techniques in biodiversity studies, and invertebrate conservation will be stressed. Intended for majors in Biology and Graduate Students, particularly students of paleontology, natural history, and conservation. Mandatory, multiday, overnight, weekend field trips required. Field trips will entail additional student costs. Elective course for biology majors and Master of Science in Biology students. Two hours lecture and three hours laboratory per week. Prerequisite: BIOLOGY 242 or BIOLOGY 271 or permission of the instructor or Graduate Standing.
