Course Description: Inverts compromise 99% of all animals on Earth
and are remarkably diverse. With this almost incomprehensible
diversity as a backdrop, we will consider how invertebrates have

simple themes and guided by evolution, ecology, and comparative
physiology. We will also survey diversity of major invertebrate
groups. Student may take lecture (Z374) without taking lab (Z375).
