Course content
The aim is to provide information on function of organs and their systems in various animal species and man with special attention to the integrative role of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. Principles and exercising of basic laboratory techniques for functional monitoring of selected organs by real and simulation. A course is focused on the functional significance of structure (functional morphology), and of the variation in structure and function as regards the geological time. Since structure is the end-product of development of the individual (ontogenesis) and of the species (phylogenesis), the discipline embraces these areas of inquiry as well. The thrust of the lectures and laboratory observations will be the organs and systems , their roles in survival, their embryogenesis, and their historical background in geological time. The purpose of this course is also to acquaint students with the identification, systematics, life history and adaptive strategies of the vertebrates.
