About this Unit
Explores the diversity of invertebrate and vertebrate life in a phylogenetic context. Taxonomy, anatomy, ecology, ethology and physiology of major groups of animals are examined. Patterns will be examined from an evolutionary perspective and the unit will focus on structure and function to examine specialisations and adaptations of animals to their environment. The unit will use lectures and laboratory sessions to allow an interactive appreciation of the diversity of biological mechanisms and processes in the Animal Kingdom.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students are required to have laboratory coat and safety goggles.
