Comparative Anatomy

Credits: 5
Course Length: Full Year
Prerequisite: CP or H Biology/Lab

Comparative Anatomy is a full-year course that is a combined lecture/lab format designed for students interested in vertebrate anatomy and physiology. A course in comparative vertebrate anatomy is, first and foremost, a course in evolution. The comparison of organ systems of a series of representative vertebrates is the most lucid and compelling illustration of evolution in the biology curriculum. In this course, students will learn homology recognition, vertebrate phylogeny, and the evolution and morphology of the major vertebrate organ systems. Students will learn the anatomy of selected vertebrates and dissecting techniques appropriate for large animals.
