About the course:

The world of invertebrates is inhabited by many strange and interesting creatures, and particularly in the marine environment you encounter alien and fascinating life forms. This course will open this (to most people) unknown environment for you, and give you the tools and skills to identify those invertebrates you encounter, e.g., when doing a biological survey. The teaching is partly based on e-learning, and partly on practical work at a marine field station.
