BIO317 Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy and Physiology

This course is a study on the diversity and connectivity of the subphylum Vertebrata. Students will examine the form and function of anatomical structures from various species and integrate this knowledge with natural history to deduce the evolutionary relationships among the vertebrates. Cellular and physiological parameters among vertebrates and some non-vertebrates will be compared. Additionally, discrete knowledge and practice of anatomical/physiological terminology and structural identification will be gained. Concurrent enrollment in BIO 318 required.

Credit Hours: 4

Prerequisites: BIO124/125, CHM124/125 and MAT 118
