Diversity of Vertebrate Animals Lab

Last updated about 2 years ago

This is an example collection based on an introductory biology lab at Marietta College.


The objective of the lab is to learn about the distinguishing characteristics of the major groups of vertebrate animals.


Collections can be annotated and shared with students to create a virtual lab space. In terms of taxonomic level you can be as general (kingdom) or specific (species) as you like.
