Course objectives
Aim of the course is to give practical information about invertebrates; to learn students work with microscope for identification of species and drawing their inner structures; classify invertebrates into the system of animals.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to: identify those invertebrate taxa, which were presented during the course; draw invertebrates under microscope and describe particular structures; classify invertebrates into the system of animals.
