SCI 331-332: Biology II – Anatomy & Physiology
The study of anatomy and physiology through the thorough dissection of a specimen can reveal the similarities and important differences that have developed between distantly related animals. Part of the class time will be devoted to the dissection of different organisms, where students will be expected to learn the techniques necessary for careful, precise dissection. Students will be assessed through lab practicals and group projects. Topics covered include organ systems of the human body and homeostasis, developmental biology, evolution, disease, as well as how they compare and contrast with organisms in other kingdoms.
