Content

In SLE219, students will learn how to distinguish between key groups of marine invertebrates; and how to recognise and classify various biological aspects of form and function. Learning and assessment activities provide students with the opportunity to explore both living and preserved specimens during three-hour practical sessions and at least two fieldtrips. 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). Students are required to attend and engage in both practical and fieldwork exercises. This enables students to connect theory with taxonomic practice, which includes identifying and recognising key features of various biological aspects of form and function for a range of marine invertebrates.

Assessment

2 x practical tests (30% each) 60%, 1 scientific report 40%
