BIOL 3560

Comparative Animal Histology

(Lab Required) (Formerly ZOOL 3060, 022.306) This course focuses on the cell and tissue organization of animals. Cell morphology and specialization, tissue types and a survey of the cellular and tissue organization of all organ systems are covered. The primary focus is on mammals but comparative aspects of other animal groups are also included. Not to be held with BIOL 3561 (ZOOL 3061, 022.347). Prerequisite: One of BIOL 1030, BIOL 1031, or the former 071.125 (C). Recommended prerequisite: one of BIOL 2210 (ZOOL 2320, 022.232), BIOL 2231 (ZOOL 2501, 022.250), BIOL 2520 (ZOOL 2280, 022.228), or BIOL 2521 (ZOOL 2281).
