BIOL-2311 Vertebrados Laboratorio

This course supplements theory classes with anatomy studies based on specimens and illustrated with practice of relevant notions that are required to understand the diversification of vertebrates. Laboratory emphasis doe snot consist in an exhaustive memorizing of the structures that make up the various systems (skeletal, muscle, etc.) of organisms, but rather the comprehensive study of important features that are distinctive of each group, and the adaptations associated with the different vertebrate forms of life. Access to the reference collection at the recently organized Natural History Museum will provide first hand knowledge about basic aspects of Colombian vertebrates.
