BIOL 505 - Physiological Ecology

Units: 3
Advanced exploration of the interactions between animals and their environment. Focuses on major life processes such as respiration, endothermy versus ectothermy, torpor, hibernation, and the physiological trade-offs between growth, storage, reproduction and survival. Physiological features of animals that permit them to live in extreme environments including the deep sea, deserts, boreal/polar regions, and caves will be discussed. Field trip(s) during or outside of class (including weekends) may be required.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 353 , or enrollment in the Biological Sciences graduate program.
