|(4 cr.) A systemic approach to vertebrate anatomy and
physiology examining how structures and organ
systems have evolved through the different
vertebrate groups from fish to mammals. Skeletal,
muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems are
covered in this first semester of the full-year
course. The laboratory involves the application
of material from the accompanying lecture. This
highly integrated approach reviews anatomy using
two representative vertebrates, the shark and cat,
to compare structures and organ systems.
Physiological principles are applied through
inquiry-based activities and experimental design.
Must be taken in sequence with BIO 228/BIO 228L.
(3 lecture hrs.; 3 lab hrs.) Prerequisite:
Successful completion of BIO101/102 or BIO150/151
(lecture and lab)with a grade of C- or better and
CHE110/111 (lecture and lab).
Prerequisite: 1 group; BIO 101, BIO 101L, BIO 102, CHE 110, CHE 110L, CHE 111, CHE 111L; BIO 150, BIO 151, CHE 110, CHE 110L, CHE 111, CHE 111L; As Needed|
