Animal Structure and Function

This paper is an integrated theoretical and experimental study of the principles of animal structure and function. Comparative aspects will be emphasised in how animals adapt to their environment. Topics covered include homeostasis, the function of major organ systems, ecophysiology, musculoskeletal design and locomotion. An introduction to the physiological basis of animal behaviour will include chemical ecology, orientation and senses, biological rhythms and the genetics of behaviour.
