BIOL 32800 - Principles Of Physiology

Credit Hours: 4.00. This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to physiology with an emphasis on cellular mechanisms that underlie anatomical and physiological adaptations used by animals to survive in their habitat. Topics covered will range from cellular respiration to the physical limits of animal performance as we deconstruct and then reconstruct the body to examine how animals can live in extreme environments. Goals for this course are for students to gain a foundation in basic physiological principles, to learn about the integrative nature of the systems of animals, and to appreciate how and why animals have evolved and strategies to help them survive in their unique environment. Typically offered Spring.
