Introduction to the Insect Order

This course introduces this charismatic group of invertebrates with a range of classroom-based and practical sessions. The course will introduce the group and cover key identification characteristics as well as field survey techniques of both adults and nymphs. We will also study and observe the ecology of dragonflies, their mating strategies and territorial behaviour.
