BIOL 3472

Environmental Physiology of Animals 2

(Lab Required) This course is intended to acquaint students with the control and integration of organ systems and body functions of animals, and their biochemical and physiological adaptations to environmental perturbations. Areas covered may include neuroendocrinology, excretion, and water, salt, and acid-base balance. Laboratories explore related subjects in various animals. This course may not be held for credit with BIOL 3460, or the former ZOOL 3530, or the former 022.353. Prerequisites: BIOL 2200 (C) or BIOL 2210 (C) or consent of department.
