BIOL 370 - Animal Physiology

Units: 4
Core principles/concepts in animal physiology with emphasis on the regulation and integration of vertebrate systems, from the molecular/cellular level to the whole organism. Gateway course for all upper division physiology core courses and electives. Lecture Units: 3; Lab Units: 1

Strongly Recommended Preparation: STAT 303.
Prerequisites: BIOL 140B with grade C- or better and CHEM 112.
Possible Instructional Methods: Entirely On-ground.
Grading: A-F grading only.

Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  1. Develop and apply a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to animal physiology;
  2. Communicate clearly and in a way that demonstrates knowledge and understanding of animal physiology and the ability to adapt information for different applications;
  3. Recognize and explain the physiological functions of body systems in relation to component structures;
  4. Recognize and explain the interrelationships within and between physiological systems;
  5. Predict physiological consequences of homeostatic imbalance;
  6. Connect physiological principles/concepts to real-world situations, including disease, environmental impacts, and other health-related issues;
  7. Connect physiological principles/concepts to other those of other disciplines (e.g., ecology, evolution, chemistry, physics, engineering);
  8. Analyze and use data, visual displays of information (e.g., graphs, tables, textbook figures, concept maps/flow charts, etc.), and mathematical equations to explain physiological phenomena;
  9. Apply information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use appropriate resources;
  10. Construct explanations/arguments from scientific evidence;
  11. Demonstrate appropriate laboratory procedures to collect and analyze physiological data quantitatively and qualitatively.
