  MARINE ZOOLOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

La Zoología Marina trata del estudio de los animales marinos desde diversos enfoques: taxonómico, biológico, ecológico, biogeográfico y aplicado. Resulta básica en diferenes disciplinas marinas, entre otras, Biología Marina, Ecología Marina, Oceanografía Biológica, Biología Pesquera, Acuicultura o Impacto ambiental. Dentro de su aspecto aplicado, su conocimiento es fundamental para las pesquerías, acuicultura, farmacología y medicina marinas, estructuración del hábitat, protección ambiental, ordenación y gestión del litoral, cambio climático, ocio y tráfico marítimos, etc. Conviene resaltar que un 98% del volumen del océano está dominado por los animals; además, un 97% de los planes estructurales actuales del reino animal están presentes en el ambiente marino, frente a un 50% de los amientes terrestres y acuáticos (agua dulce). Podemos encontrar desde los minúsculos 'protozoos' hasta la ballena azul (el mayor animal que existe y ha existido).
