Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Mollusca are most diverse in terms of morphology and ecology and second in species-richness only to arthropods. The combined lecture and practical course, probably unique in its depth, gives a comprehensive introduction to this phylum. The lecture deals with the general characteristics of all eight major molluscan groups, from the archaic "worm-molluscs" to the sophisticated cephalopods. It also provides a phylogenetic and evolutionary framework for the Mollusca and incorporates front-line results of all relevant fields, i.e. developmental biology, ultrastructure research, palaeontology, and molecular phylogeny.
The practical course offers hands-on experience with a diverse sample of molluscan species. The organization of each group and the most important variations are assessed by dissections and histological serial sections. Morphological skills like, e.g. comparing dissected and sectioned specimens, histological characterization of tissues, and scientific illustration are introduced and trained. Individual focus topics are presented in oral and written form. This, together with an oral exam and the overall performance serve as basis for the evaluation.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation, written and oral reports on the focus topic, and an oral exam on examples from the practical contribute equally to the evaluation.
