Restrictions:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Undergraduate Professional
Visiting Undergraduate
Undergraduate
Prerequisite(s): BIOC 201
Description: This course takes a functional approach to investigate animal physiology from a cellular and molecular perspective. Using an integrated and comparative approach, students learn how animals maintain homeostasis, including how they meet their energy needs, take up and transport oxygen, and maintain hydration and salt balance. Students will read primary literature to explore physiological adaptations for survival in extreme environments. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: BIOC 536. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for BIOC 335 if student has credit for BIOC 536.
