Module overview

An exciting journey through the weird and wonderful world of marine invertebrates. You will learn how to identify key representatives of the marine invertebrate phyla and understand how their characteristic body plans allow them to thrive in habitats that range from the lightless depth of the deep sea to the sun-flooded water of tropical coral reefs. All lectures in this module are accompanied by hands-on practicals. The taxonomic and documentation skills that you acquire in this course will not only help you in future fieldwork modules, but also boost your employability.
