Spring 2024
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, evolutionary and developmental constraints on vertebrate anatomy, and the ways that a comparative anatomical approach informs our understanding of the human body. The course format will consist of two lectures and one lab per week, with lab sessions focusing on detailed dissection of several representative vertebrate species.
