The course focusses on sensory systems and sensory organs in different animal groups. The course will cover a range of topics, from the physical properties of different sensory stimuli to how animals use their senses to guide their movement, communication and navigation. There will be a strong emphasis on comparisons between different animal groups, as well as on the evolution and development of sensory organs. The course involves lectures, laboratory work, seminars and project work.
Course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
