- Techniques in Insect Biology
|Coordinator(s)||Nigel Andrew (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
Techniques in Insect Biology is a hands-on practical unit designed to identify key laboratory and field skills in insect collection, surveys and experimentation. The unit will cover practical aspects of insect ecology, physiology, behaviour, biodiversity, and interactions from genes to ecosystems. Readings will be focusing on understanding how to carry out insect-biology-based research, and interpret relevant scientific literature related to techniques used in insect biology. Student outcomes will include an understanding and a practical knowledge of using key laboratory and field techniques required for working with insects; an understanding of how to analyse and interpret this data, and methods used to find and interpret literature associated with the techniques used. The unit will be highly hands-on, and requires animal experimentation and dissection during the mandatory intensive school.
