- Biology 271a - Vertebrate Biology
The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the diversity and variety of vertebrate animals and illustrate their evolutionary history. Included is information about the lifestyles of animals as well as the relationships between structure and function. We will consider both living and fossil forms and survey the basic approaches to living across vertebrates. General topics for consideration include phylogeny and development as well as the systems involved in support, locomotion, feeding, digestion, circulation, communication, osmoregulation, gaseous exchange, reproduction and sensory operations (see tentative course schedule).
