BIOL 324 - Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy

(4)
A comprehensive investigation of the anatomy of representative vertebrates, including humans, at the level of general body form - phylogenetic and embryonic development. Evolution of vertebrate circulatory, respiratory, urinary, digestive, nervous, and reproductive systems are covered relative to ecology of species/classes. Application of current biological theories of development and evolution is intertwined with examination of physical form and fossil records to highlight the role of natural selection in vertebrate evolution. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 152 . Corequisite(s): BIOL-324L. Offered fall semester.
