Zoology

ZOO 261 Human Physiology I (3-3L) A

The basic structure and function of body systems – including cellular physiology, as well as nerve, muscle, sensory, reproductive and endocrine systems.

Prerequisite: BIO 133 or consent of instructor and department chair

 

ZOO 263 Human Physiology II (3-3L) A

The basic structure and function of body systems – including blood and immunity, as well as the cardio- vascular, respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems. This is a continuation of ZOO 261.

Prerequisite: ZOO 261

 

ZOO 265 Human Anatomy (3-3L) B

This course covers the structure and function of the human body systems, with special emphasis on the muscular-skeletal, circulatory and nervous systems.

Prerequisite: BIO 133

 

ZOO 275 Invertebrate Zoology (3-3L) B

This course deals with the organization and morphology of the invertebrate phyla.

Prerequisite: BIO 133

 

ZOO 277 Biology of Vertebrates (3-3L) B

This course examines the comparative anatomy, function, and development of the vertebrate groups.

Prerequisite: BIO 133

 

ZOO 323 Integrative Physiology (3) B

This advanced physiology course will enhance previous knowledge on body systems by discussing how different body systems interact with each other – including cardio-pulmonary and cardio-renal interactions, as well the integrated body effects of stress, exercise, growth, and disease.

Prerequisite: ZOO 263

Note: This course is cross-listed as KIN 323

 

ZOO 361 Pathophysiology (3) B

This course covers the diseases and dysfunction of each body system, at the cellular, organ, and system level.

Prerequisite: ZOO 263

 

ZOO 379 Introduction to Marine Biology (3) B  

This course is a zoology field course to Bamfield Marine Station. It will introduce students to the organisms found in the open ocean as well as the coastal and inter-tidal zones, how these organisms adapt to the environment, and the factors that control their productivity, distribution, and abundance. It will be multi-disciplinary, including aspects of animal biology, physiology, and ecology. It will incorporate lectures and class discussions but emphasize field work with organisms found in the coastal waters off British Columbia. Independent research papers will provide further opportunity to explore specific aspects of the Pacific Northwest oceanography.
