Teaching taxonomy

photo[3]practicalToday I delivered a practical teaching session based on adaptation and classification for our 1st year Zoology and Biology students from the Faculty of Life Sciences. The session allowed the students a first-hand experience with a wide range of unusual animals from the Vivarium and introduced them to basic taxonomy and the use of dichotomous keys.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the demonstrators who helped today and also what a pleasure it was to welcome our students from FLS to the Museum – I hope they enjoyed the session as much as I did delivering it!
