BIO 227 - Comparative Anatomy and Physiology
(4 cr.) A systemic approach to vertebrate anatomy and physiology examining how structures and organ systems have evolved through the different vertebrate groups from fish to mammals. Skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems are covered in this first semester of the full-year course. The laboratory involves the application of material from the accompanying lecture. This highly integrated approach reviews anatomy using two representative vertebrates, the shark and cat, to compare structures and organ systems. Physiological principles are applied through inquiry-based activities and experimental design. Must be taken in sequence with BIO 228/BIO 228L. (3 lecture hrs.; 3 lab hrs.) Prerequisite: Successful completion of BIO101/102 or BIO150/151 (lecture and lab)with a grade of C- or better and CHE110/111 (lecture and lab). Prerequisite: 1 group; BIO 101, BIO 101L, BIO 102, CHE 110, CHE 110L, CHE 111, CHE 111L; BIO 150, BIO 151, CHE 110, CHE 110L, CHE 111, CHE 111L; BIO 227L; As Needed
