Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to the physiology of animals. The physiology of both invertebrate and vertebrate animals is covered as well as limited treatment of human physiology as it relates to general physiological mechanisms. The course relies on the comparative method in analyzing physiological systems of diverse taxa to identify general principles of functional mechanisms. The course also considers variations in these mechanisms as related to the requirements of the animals but does not attempt a phylogenetic survey.

The course is intended for concentrators and pre-medical students in their sophomore, junior, or senior years. The subject matter includes metabolism and temperature regulation, nervous and endocrine system controls and integration, respiration and circulation, water and ion balance, excretion, digestion, reproduction, and immune system function. There are three one-hour lectures a week and four one-hour examinations.
