Phylum Chordata: Class Mammalia (circulatory, urinary and digestive systems) –
Wednesday, December 11
In our final week, students study mammalian circulatory, urinary and digestive systems
including investigating a mammalian heart, kidney and stomach. We also use
microscope slides to study the cellular level of these organs.
Throughout this semester, students learn basic classification and taxonomic organization, as well as the biology, ecology and anatomy of protist, invertebrate and vertebrate phyla. In addition, microscopy and dissection techniques are practiced throughout the semester. Although dissections are included in this course, students do not have to actively participate in the dissections if they prefer not to. All lab costs are included in registration fee. Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
