BIO 435 Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy 5cr

In this course we will study the functional morphology, development, and adaptations of vertebrates through a comparative approach. For each major body system, we will consider the relationship between form and function, developmental origins, and evolutionary history. In the laboratory we will examine the anatomy of selected protochordates, and conduct an in-depth dissection of the domestic cat.
