Course Description: FHL 432. This course is designed to provide students with comprehensive exposure to the subject of invertebrate zoology. Students will learn about the diversity, taxonomy, ecology, evolution, structure, and function of invertebrates. We will cover all animal phyla from Annelida to Xenacoelomorpha and explore diversity within phyla based on the rich marine biota of the San Juan Islands. Students will learn about the field of invertebrate zoology in light of information gained through the use of traditional tools like electron microscopy and histology as well as new tools like genomics and evolutionary developmental biology (“evo-devo”). If you like going to zoos and aquariums, you should like this course as most of students’ time in the course will be spent focusing on the study of living animals in the laboratory and field.
