This course examines the physiological principles that guide animal life processes. Framed in an evolutionary context, processes including respiration, circulation, neural control, movement, excretion and metabolism will be understood in terms of core principles that also apply to humans. Laboratories will include directed and self-directed investigations into animal physiology using research grade data acquisition systems. Not open to students who have taken Biology 329D or BME 244L. Prerequisites: Biology 20 or 201L and Physics 141L and Chemistry 101DL.
