study of structure, function and economic importance of invertebrate phyla
(protozoa, porifera, coelenterate, cnidaria, annelida arthropoda, mollusca, and
echinodermata) and their diversity, in the context of teacher education.
course unit gives students adequate insight/understanding into structure,
diversity, classification, of invertebrates which is prerequisite for teaching
biology but also key to understanding the biology of vertebrates
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
By the end of the course unit, students
should be able to:
Describe the diagnostic
features of each invertebrate group or phylum.
Mention adoptive features of
each group to its habitat.
Explain the economic
significance of each phylum.
Describe the structure and
functioned relationships as well as the systematic of each phylum.
