BIOL208: Animal Structure and Function
This unit explores biological diversity of form and function in the major groups of animals. Relationships between structure and function are emphasised using a comparative approach to understand how different animal groups carry out similar life processes. This unit also discusses how structural characteristics and their corresponding function have adapted to specific environments, with particular focus on adaptations that enabled life on land for various taxa. This unit is suitable for students interested in whole animal biology, science education and students interested in further research or research careers.
