BIO 3051 - Comparative Anatomy and Physiology II

Credits: 4
Students develop a working knowledge of the comparative structure and function of the animal body. In class, students compare how different animal groups carry out muscle function, circulation, respiration, digestion, excretion, reproduction, and fluid, energy and thermal balance. In laboratory, students utilize a combination of classroom discussions, anatomical models, palpation (surface anatomy), nerve/muscle associations, dissections of preserved material, computer software, musculoskeletal analysis of movements, and limited human cadaver examination to become proficient in structure/function relationships including medical perspectives.
