Survey of the Animal Kingdom (BIO244)
4.0 Semester Hours
IAI Code: L1 902L What's this?
This evolutionary survey course of the protozoan and animal kingdoms is a comparative approach to how organisms have solved the problems of support (physical form), locomotion, respiration, digestion and reproduction. Representatives of the major phyla are dissected in laboratory. The link between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom is stressed in every chapter, making clear how even the most obscure invertebrate has an impact on the human species. These interactions are grouped in four categories: Harmful Animals, Helpful Animals, Animals as Food and Animals as Medicine.
