Hello sseebeck, I'm a little embarrassed that I have to ask, but what is "organismal biology?"
lol hey blues :) Plant and animal taxonomy and morphology basics.
we are currently covering invertebrates.
That's a good question. I've had a hard time finding decent lecture videos, but Youtube can be useful for things like parasite lifecycles.
I found a couple on you tube posted by greatpacific and the UCberkely lectures covered plant morphology a bit but I haven't been able to find much of anything that covers animals.
I wish my trusty Hickman's "Zoology" were an online video. While not lectures per se, there is a superb archive of videos on different animal life forms online. It has been years since I looked it up and I promise I will remember the domain name in the next twenty four hours.
Aha, I remembered it! http://www.arkive.org/
Great thank you blue! I should never have taken a hybrid online bio course I just can't cram in the information at the rate that this course demands.
Oh, I had that feeling when I took zoology. It was a lot of just that - info cramming. Best of luck with it!
Thanks again for the link i'm off to check it out now :)
Good to know I'm not the only one, blues... I had zoology last semester and spent a couple of fairly solid weeks in the library trying to cram everything into my head. Books helped a lot. I'd recommend seeing if the local library has any good textbooks, sseebeck, preferably with big illustrations.
Thanks Calliope! I agree its nice to know others feel the same way. One week we covered 5 chapters in the text and had 3 assigned labs. I don't know how the other students manage especially in a hybrid without having a lecture to at least hint at what I should focus on retaining.
If it's anything like the zoology and botany courses that I took last semester, you'll need to retain the vast majority of it. As much as possible anyway. But the more you learn, the easier it will become to order the different taxa in your head in terms of distinguishing characteristics and what evolved where. You say you're learning about invertebrates at the moment: what sort?
Here is a full course of lectures for organismal biology from the university of ottawa http://salinella.bio.uottawa.ca/BIO1130/Lectures/default.php?1130_lect00_All_broadcasts.htm??E?Md2ChapterMcp1
i agree zoology means lots of cramming as i m doing rit now :P
