Efekty kształcenia:

Student understands the concept of the ‘Tree of Life’, is able to describe the diversity at the highest taxonomic ranks of Invertebrata, and understands the “Darwin’s dilemma”.


Student is able to:

• identify the 35 animal phyla in the newest cladistic approach and comment on morphological as well as molecular evidence supporting the recognition of these major entities;

• explain why life without oxygen in the deep sea is so interesting in the light of recent findings;

• explain why tardigrades could survive in space and how the experiment was designed and what are the possible future directions for astrobiological studies;

• explain why the submarine columns of ikaite tufa in Greenland will disappear – and why the life inside the ikaite pillars is so unique and diverse;

• name and understand current microscopy techniques used in modern zoology.

Social competence and attitude

Student can:

• communicate the scientific questions to be asked, justify and explain the connection between the newest results of morphological investigations within the Animal Kingdom with molecular data;

• name and understand essential mechanisms of animal evolution, scheme of the body plan and adaptations to environment;

• appreciate the importance of rigorous and ethical approaches to global warming and why Greenland is so central in the discussion.

Wymagania wstępne:

Theoretical knowledge of “The Animal Kingdom” and the “Global warming” in Greenland at the basic level:

• understanding basic concepts of what a phylum is;

• basic knowledge of geological timescale in relation to evolution of life;

• basic understanding of global warming.
