- Learning Outcomes
By the end of this paper students are expected to have:
- gained a general knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms of reproduction and development across a range of animal groups;
- developed their ability to individually to source scientific knowledge and to communicate ideas effectively in written form;
- demonstrated an ability to work as a member of a team to design and run simple experiments;
- gained experience in the use of statistical analysis to support research findings;
- considered some of the social, ethical and cultural issues surrounding animal physiology and will be encouraged to formulate their own opinions on some of these issues.
