    Description

    The scientific themes will cover an initial general introduction to the marine environment and its diverse ecosystems
    followed by theoretical and practical introductions to plankton, oceanic nekton, intertidal organisms, and subtidal benthic animals. In subsequent practical comparative work, the morphology and diversity of major invertebrate phyla, including sponges, cnidarians, arthropods, echinoderms and tunicates, and of teleost fish will be explored. Experimental
    benchwork will focus on fundamental aspects of developmental biology and neurobiology of marine animals. Developmental processes such as fertilization, cell lineage, cell differentiation, organogenesis and larval development will be analysed in representative marine organisms (echinoderms, ascidians, annelids). Comparative neurobiological experiments will elucidate major sense organ types, central nervous system organization and behavioural control systems in marine organisms. Developmental evolutionary (Evo-Devo) aspects will be emphasized in both experimental areas by demonstrations and
    theoretical presentations. Independent practical work and literature reports by the participating students will be encouraged. This two-week course will be credited with 4 ECTS.
