Physiology is the study of how vertebrates carry out their bodily functions at the cellular (microscopic) and tissue and organ (macroscopic) levels. These functions are related to the various environments that vertebrates inhabit. Differences in the physiology of various vertebrates are connected to a variety of different environmental conditions. The concept of sustainability is an integral part of this course. Labs include non-invasive experiments using fish, amphibians and mammals along with virtual labs.
