Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy

Spring 2023
Section: 01   02  

This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the main organ systems in vertebrates, emphasizing phylogenetic relationships and anatomical features of major vertebrate groups. Using a comparative, systems-based approach students will explore the relationships between structure and function, as well as evolutionary and developmental constraints on vertebrate anatomy. This course will also explore the ways that a comparative anatomical approach informs our understanding of the human body. The course will consist of lectures, in class exploratory activities, and occasional laboratory sections for dissection of representative vertebrates.
