Course title



Biology I

Course description

Zoology is an in-depth study of the classification; anatomy; and physiology of animals through comparative analysis. Topics include evolution; development; and various body systems and their organs. Structure and function will be emphasized. Students will spend some time learning about varying degrees of tissue specialization and the levels of organization of invertebrate animals such as sponges; starfish; earth-worms; snails; mussels; crayfish; and grasshoppers. The majority of the course will be devoted to expanding these concepts of tissue structure and function to vertebrate animals. Students in the course will participate in extensive laboratory deissections of both vertebrates in invertebrates.
