248 Invertebrate Zoology
This course traces the path of invertebrate evolution from single-celled
protozoans to the most primitive chordates. Emphasis is placed upon
major breakthroughs in design which enable organisms to exploit new
ecological habitats. Laboratories are designed to provide students with
first-hand lab and field research experiences and use of video-microscopy
facilities. Students attend lectures plus one 3-hour laboratory per
week. Taught annually. Prerequisites: Biology 125 and 126.
