Vertebrate Microscopic Anatomy
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3
  • Lab: 3

A contemporary and comparative approach to the micro-anatomical study of the organ systems of representative vertebrate models including fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between structure and function. Classical descriptions of vertebrate histological structures are supplemented with modern findings in biochemistry, immunocytochemistry and molecular biology to give the student a solid basis for understanding animal morphology and evolutionary relationships.
