OEB155r: Biology of Insects

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2008

(I am no longer involved with this course) An introduction to the major groups of insects. The life history, morphology, physiology, and ecology of the main taxa are examined through a combination of lecture, lab, and field exercises. Topics include the phylogeny of terrestrial arthropods with a review of the extant orders, an analysis of abiotic and biotic factors regulating populations, including water balance, temperature, migration, parasitism, mutualism, sociality, insect/plant interactions, medical entomology, and the use of insects in biological control.

BIOS E-65C: Human Anatomy and Physiology I

Semester: 

Fall

(I am no longer involved with this course) This course is an introduction to human anatomy and physiology from an integrative perspective. Students learn the structure and function of the tissues, the skeletal system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, and muscle function from the level of the cell to the level of the organism. Prerequisites: BIOS E-1a and BIOS E-1b, or the equivalent. (4 credits)

BIOS E-65D: Human Anatomy and Physiology II

Semester: 

Spring

(I am no longer involved with this course) This course is a continuation of BIOS E-65c. Students learn the structure and function of the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system, the immune system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, and the urogenital system from the level of the cell to the level of the organism. Prerequisites: BIOS E-1a and BIOS E-1b, or the equivalent; BIOS E-65c. (4 credits)
