Welcome Back

Another school year has arrived. This will be an interesting year because this will be our first year with the new General Zoology course. The main differences between this course and the previous vertebrate zoology/invertebrate zoology combo are that it will be broader in scope and yet friendlier to students who do not have a strong biology background. Being only one semester long, we will obviously not get to spend time with all of the animals that I used to cover in the old classes but I hope that students get a good overview of the animal kingdom and find it interesting enough to go on to study more narrow topics in zoology in the future.
