Dissection is an important part of many biology and life science courses. Properly planned dissection activities with clear learning goals allow students to observe similarities and differences among organisms and improve student understanding of anatomy and physiology. Dissection safety requires knowledge of preservatives and preserved materials, careful attention to safety precautions, availability of required safety equipment and proper tools, instruction of dissection procedures and advance planning for cleanup and disposal.
