Purpose: This module is intended for students pursuing a career in the field of animal conservation, veterinary, marine science, ecology, genetics, and animal behaviour, including practitioners in the field of zoology. The purpose of this module is to enable students to demonstrate practical skills in the use of research and dissection microscopes and basic dissection skills, and be able to recognise diagnostic characteristics on which classification systems are based. Insight into the structural and functional diversity of invertebrate and vertebrate animals must also be demonstrated. They will personally be able to follow a laboratory protocol and analyse the data that is obtained from such a protocol. Students will also be able to describe basic laboratory techniques used in genetic experiments.
