Learning Outcomes of UE

The main objective of this course is to providing to students an overview of the major groups of existing and ancestral animals , tehir morphology, and the main adapotaitons allowing them to fulfill their basic needs and to take advantage of their environment

At the end of the class, the students will be able to : 

- describe how the memebrs from the different groups studied move, breathe, eat, deal wtih their metabolic wastes, feel their environment and reproduce themselves
- describe the general morphology and know the distinctive structures of the groups
- define and properly utilize zoological terminology
- dissect/observe the major structures associated with locomotion, breathing, circulaiton, excretion, reproduction, and perception.
- graphically and efficiently expose qualitative or quantitative information

Content of UE

1. Introduction

2. Major organisational plans :

- the cell as an organ (unicellular eukaryotes)
- pluricellular status (parazoans and diplobastic metazoans)
- Development of the mesoderm (triplobastic coelomates protostomians)
- Development of the mesoderm (triploblastic coelomates deuterostomians)

3. Major functions:

- Nutrition
- Respiration
- Relationship (protection, mobilit^y, perception)
- Integration (coordination, circulation)
- Reproduction

4. Animal sheaths
