BIOL 308 Comparative Animal Physiology

In this seminar animal species are treated as variables in the study of the diversity of adaptations to physiological problems presented by the environment (e.g., salt and water balance, temperature regulation, circulation, respiration). After an initial series of lectures, students present papers from the scientific literature and lead ensuing discussions. In addition, several laboratory exercises and films demonstrate basic physiological processes in invertebrates.
