Course summary

Zoology is a fundamental biological discipline that forms the basis of many applied animal science subjects. You will explore the animal kingdom and study a range of topics such as physiology, genetics, evolution, ecology, animal behaviour and data interpretation along with animal taxonomy and phylogenetics. Your learning will explore the various adaptations of evolution, including natural selection and the associated DNA coding. You will look at hierarchical organisation, from molecules to cells, to tissues to organisms, to populations to ecosystems. You will also be trained in the identification of a significant range of species using a variety of methods. Furthermore, you will learn to manage and handle taxonomic data and apply your findings to the broader issues of conservation.
