LAB: Prin Plant/Animal Physiol
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
BIOL, EXSC, HSCI, PHYS
Goals: To introduce the basic principles of plant and animal physiology emphasizing structure-function relationships, mechanisms of integration of cellular, tissue and organ functions, and the concept of homeostatic balance. To gain experience in the practice of science by posing scientific questions, designing experiments or observations to answer these questions and presenting the results of these studies in a public forum. To increase skills in the following areas: Oral and written communication, use of the computer as a scientific tool, functioning as a member of a goal directed team. Content: Physiological mechanisms for the regulation of water balance, gas exchange, and energy balance in both plants and animals will be covered. The role of cells, tissues and organs in physiological process; function and regulation of the endocrine, digestive, respiratory, vascular and nervous systems in animals. Taught: Spring term Prerequisite: None NOTE: Students must concurrently register for a lecture and a corresponding 0-credit lab section of this course. This course is open to first-year students only. Exceptions are made by permission of the instructor. Non-science majors seeking the Hamline Plan "N" through Biology should take a course in the BIOL 1100 series rather than taking BIOL 1820. Credits: 4
