Invertebrate Biology

Invertebrate Biology is the study of the form, function, behavior, natural history, ecology, and evolution of non-vertebrate animals. Courses in Invertebrate Biology traditionally include lectures and laboratory work focused on representatives of the major animal taxa.  Teaching about the subject involves extensive use of data graphics, diagrams, digital images, movies, and descriptions of natural history and research.  At this site we ultimately hope to include a number of these resources as aids to teaching about invertebrates.
