BIO 315 - Animal Physiology and Lab


Prerequisites: BIO 103  and BIO 104 ; or consent of instructor
Fulfills a course requirement in the Biology Core Concentration Fulfills a Marine Biology elective in the Organismal and Ecology category
This course examines how animals work, and how their physiology allows them to function in their particular environment. It combines classical comparative physiology with physiological ecology, looking at the physiological bases of energy metabolism, respiration, circulation, locomotion, and integration in both vertebrate and invertebrate animals in a variety of environments, including extreme habitats like the deep ocean, deserts, and polar climates. In the laboratory, students test physiological concepts based on data collected from live subjects (invertebrate and vertebrate).
