Course description

Knowledge of zoology and especially on animal phylogeny and taxonomy knowledge of basical ecology rules

diversity and evolution of life cycle of marine invertebrates .he knowledge of reproductive biology and diversity of larval forms is utilized to understand the evolution of life cycle and its implication in determining the invertebrate distribution and ecology

enable students to read specific paper on the topic in a critical manner, and to be able to carry out personal research on the subject treated during the course

 

the knowledge of reproductive biology and diversity of larval forms is utilized to understand the evolution of life cycle and its implication in determining the invertebrate distribution and ecology

 

in addition to frontal teaching and field exercises, students actively participate by producing their own presentations of the topics and analyzing publications on the topic.
