Content

The unit introduces students to key morphological characteristics that are used to separate broad groups of marine invertebrates. The unit information is delivered during practical classes and fieldwork exercises so that student can directly observed and handle living specimens from each broad invertebrate group in conjunction with material that is posted in the Cloud. The unit provides students with a greater understanding of evolution and diversity of marine invertebrates (from the microscopic plankton to the giant squid) and their role in a range of marine habitats and ecosystems. The unit also builds on the knowledge that students have acquired during foundation units, such as Cells and Genes (SLE111) and Biology: Form and Function (SLE132).
