This course deals with the structure and function of systems found in animals and plants. It will emphasize major homeostatic mechanisms and their evolutionary significance; as well as, demonstrate organismal adaptations to common problems of transportation, control, and reproduction. The course will be taught in two parts with one section emphasizing animal adaptations, and the other part emphasizing plant adaptations. The lab will focus on demonstrating actual anatomical and physiological mechanisms on organisms.
