Overview

La zoologia è la conoscenza degli animali, i nostri coinquilini. Ci sono centinaia di specie animali che interagiscono insieme a noi in una relazione di comunità o ecosistema. Questo corso di Zoologia è una passeggiata nei temi propri della materia come elemento culturale essenziale per il biologo, il naturalista e chiunque si occupi della vita. Scopriremo la zoologia attraverso gli animali, cercheremo di conoscerli dal punto di vista della biologia riproduttiva, dell’evoluzione, del loro comportamento e inserimento nell’ecosistema. Diversi esempi ti accompagneranno nella comprensione di questo affascinante mondo, indirizzandoti nella giusta modalità di porsi di fronte alla natura, per la comprensione scientifica ed emozionale.

Zoology is about understanding animals, our neighbours on planet earth. There are hundreds of species that interact with us in diverse communities and ecosystems. This course is a journey through a subject that is essential to any Biologist, Naturalist and Life Scientist. Our approach to zoology is through a knowledge of animals, their evolution, behaviour, reproductive systems and place in the ecosystem. Exploration of this fascinating world is through concrete examples which lead to an understanding of nature which is emotional as well as scientific.

This is possibly one of the best university level course I have ever taken, both in person and online (MOOC).

The teacher assumes no previous knowledge and all the information you need is available online.

The lectures are very enjoyable to watch, much like watching nature documentaries. The material is organized in very efficient and convenient format. The teacher is clear and agreable to listen to. I particularly apprecited the use of real museal reperts to show how an animal is. This strategy increases and facilitates the understanding of some concepts.

This course is fantastic. The professor is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the material. You can tell he is very passionate about the subject. He makes you want to learn more about animales. Because of him, I have developed a deeper interest in Zoology and I cannot wait for him to teach more courses.

The part of the course I already completed is very interesting and quite simple to be understood also by a person who didn’t study this subject at university, like me. I absolutely suggest you to take a look at this course.

It is an excellent class, easy to listen and understand also for a public not expert. the only limitation is the fact that it is held in Italian.
