BIOL-2302 Invertebrados-Teoria

This course studies the levels of organization, basics of taxonomy and morphology of the major invertebrates Phyla. The corporal plans and ontogenesis of each Phylum are compared to thus understand their relationships and evolutionary trends, according to current theories on animal Phylogenesis. The shape and function of invertebrates are generally related to their medium and forms of life, emphasizing on the degree of specialization and biological success.
