Course description
  FUNDAMENTALS OF ZOOLOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

Fundamentos de Zoología representa una asignatura básica y fundamental en el conocimiento de las Ciencias del Mar, ya que la mayor parte de los recursos vivos marinos (pesca, acuicultura, farmacología¿) son de origen animal. Además, los animales representan el principal componente de la biota marina y se distribuyen desde la zona de salpicaduras hasta las trincheras hadales (-11.000 m). La asignatura tiene como objetivos principales el conocimiento del plan corporal de los animales en sus diferentes phyla; introducir al alumno en el campo de la sistemática animal y la filogenia; adquirir habilidades metodológicas para el estudio taxonómico; y comprender la importancia de la Zoología aplicada a las Ciencias del Mar.
