BIOL 382 - Comparative Chordate Anatomy

(4 credits)
Prerequisite: BIOL 121 with a minimum grade of “C-” or BIOL 100 or BIOL 102 with a minimum grade of “B-”; and BIOL 122 with a minimum grade of “C-“ or equivalent; or consent of instructor
An ontogenetic and phylogenetic survey of chordate gross anatomy, supplemented by laboratory dissections of representative species is presented. Emphasis is placed on ecomorphology and the changes in chordate structure and biology of chordates that comprise their evolution, with an analysis of the significance of these changes in light of our modern knowledge of evolution. Two hours of lecture and one three-hour laboratory period weekly. In alternate spring semesters, either BIOL 382 or BIOL 284 will be offered.
