BIOL 4700 - Animal Physiology

4 cr. 6 hr. Day course offered every other year.

This course combines an introduction to the core principles of animal physiology with an in-depth discussion of how these principles are modified and shaped by environmental and ecological pressures uniquely confronted by each species. Topics will include neural and sensory physiology, circulation, gas exchange and transport, ion and water balance, digestion and metabolism, movement, and thermal physiology. We will strive for a balanced treatment of representative species and groups from across the animal kingdom, both invertebrate and vertebrate, in lectures, discussions, readings of primary literature, and laboratory exercises.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 1800 , BIOL 1900 , plus at least one advanced course with laboratory BIOL 2000+ level.
