Module description

Marine megavertebrates (including turtles, sharks, rays, cetaceans, penguins and other aquatic birds) are generally considered very charismatic animals and attract much public and research attention. As a group they also adapt to the challenges of life in water in a diverse range of ways. You will learn about the different form, function, ecology and physiology of each group of megavertebrates. You will also use practical work to learn some of the core techniques in modern marine vertebrate research in more detail, and research-led teaching to understand the very latest developments in the field. The module will also provide you with key employability skills in analysis and communication.
