BIOL 3470

ENVIRO PHYS OF ANIMALS 1

(Lab required) This course is intended to acquaint students with some of the major environmental challenges encountered by animals and stresses the diversity of physiological solutions to these problems in aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Areas covered may include thermal biology, circulation, gas exchange and buoyancy regulation. Laboratories explore related subjects in various animals. This course may not be held for credit with the former BIOL 3462, ZOOL 3540 (022.354). Prerequisite: BIOL 2200 (C) or BIOL 2210 (C); or consent of department.
