BIOS E-27 Invertebrate Zoology (TF) - Harvard Extension School

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2018
  • On-campus and/or online.

This course introduces students to the diversity of invertebrates, which are the vast majority of all animals on the planet. We cover the development, adult anatomy, biology, and evolutionary relationships of the main animal phyla including but not limited to sponges, mollusks, annelids, and arthropods. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the similarities and differences in embryonic development, the broad diversity of animal forms and their adaptations to different ecosystems, and how these phenomena...

OEB275r Phylogenetics and Phylogeography in the Era of Genomics (TF) - Harvard University

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2017
The course will review the recent literature on methods of analysis in phylogenomics and phylogeography, with particular attention to analysis of large-scale data sets; accommodating gene tree heterogeneity; adequacy of models at the level of DNA sequence evolution and demographic history; and estimation of critical parameters of population history, such as phylogenetic relationships, reticulate evolutionary histories, rates of gene flow and species boundaries.  Weekly sessions will consist of presentations and discussions led by students and by international experts, including hands-on...

OEB51 Biology and Evolution of Invertebrate Animals (TF) - Harvard University

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2016

Introduction to invertebrate diversity. Covers anatomy, biology and evolutionary relationships of the main animal phyla including sponges, mollusks, annelids, arthropods, among others. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the broad diversity of animal forms and their adaptations to different ecosystems and how these shape animal evolution. Lectures are complemented with a mandatory weekly lab and a field trip to Bocas del Toro, Panama, an area of outstanding marine diversity in the Caribbean.
