lecture, laboratory exercise
Introduction to Field Invertebrate Zoology is an exceptional subject, which was composed in order to present all main methods, which are used in particular research groups of Department of Botany and Zoology, which are specialized on invertebrates. Students will therefore at the end of course prepare an assay, summarizing all their new abilities in field methods. For preparing comprehensive assay, presence at all lectures and practical courses is necessary.
