ZOO-Zoology

ZOO 1010 General Zoology . . . . . 4(F,S)
Corequisite: ZOO 1010L.
Introduction to the basic principles in animal biology presented as an integrated review of morphology, physiology, genetics, development, systematics, evolution and ecology. Provides foundation for further study in zoology. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab. (General Studies Course: NS/LEC)

ZOO 3233 Parasitology . . . . . 4(S)
Corequisite: ZOO 3233L.
Symbioses between animal species (including protistans) are discussed and described with respect to their life cycles, distribution, pathogenicity, evolution and ecology. Medically important human parasites are included. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.

ZOO 3733 Human Anatomy . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Anatomical structure/general function of human organ systems. Emphasis on understanding human body as integrated biological system. Not accepted as major credit.

ZOO 4XXXC Fisheries Biology . . . . . 4(F)
Comparative study of cartilaginous and bony fishes, emphasizing structural and functional adaptations to their modes of living, origins, distribution, classification, adaptive radiation, embryology, and environmental requirements. Material and supply fee will be assessed. Offered concurrently with ZOO 5XXXC; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

ZOO 4254 Marine Invertebrate Zoology . . . . . 4(S)
Corequisite: ZOO 4254L.
Survey of the invertebrates, with emphasis on systematics, morphology, physiology and ecology. Labs include detailed study of types and exposure to diversity, using live and preserved specimens, and exposure to techniques used in zoological research. Emphasis is on local marine species. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.

ZOO 4304 Marine Vertebrate Zoology . . . . . 4(S)
Corequisite: ZOO 4304L.
Structure and function of chordates, especially those in water such as fish, whales and seals. Study of behavioral, ecological, physiological and structural adaptations to various modes of living, stressing local marine forms in lab. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.

ZOO 4454 Elasmobranch Biology . . . . . 3(F)
Prerequisite: CHM 2045, CHM 2045L, ZOO 1010, ZOO 1010L.
Survey of current advances in the rapidly growing field of elasmobranch biology. Lectures promote an understanding of the interactive physiological, behavioral, and ecological components of adaptive life-history strategies seen in sharks, rays, skates and chimeras. Offered concurrently with ZOO 5452; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

ZOO 4457 Fish Physiology . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: CHM 2045, CHM 2045L, PHY 2053, PHY 2053L.
Classic and contemporary topics in fish physiology discussed within an ecological and evolutionary context. Emphasis is placed on understanding interactive physiological components of adaptive life-history strategies such as movement, feeding, reproduction, oxygen uptake, water balance, and excretion. Offered concurrently with ZOO 5458; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

ZOO 4485 Marine Mammalogy . . . . . 3(SS)
Prerequisite: PCB 4043, PCB 4043L and ZOO 1010, ZOO 1010L.
Application of current mammalogy principles to the study of marine mammal biology and phylogeny. Emphasizes ecology, physiology and behavior of the sixteen marine mammal families.

ZOO 4513 Animal Behavior . . . . . 3(F)
Prerequisite: ZOO 1010.
Contemporary view of animal behavior including discussion of sensory and neurobiology, biological rhythms, genetic and experiential influences on behavior, communication, orientation, migration, predator-prey relationships and social behavior. Offered concurrently with ZOO 5514; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

ZOO 4753 Histology . . . . . 4(F)
Prerequisite: PCB 2131 and PCB 2131L.
Corequisite: ZOO 4753L.
The structural microarchitecture and cytoorganelles of various cell- and tissue-types will be examined at the light and electron microscopic levels. Various staining techniques for visualizing different cell structural compounds and cell organelles will be discussed. Function of key cell components will be presented and students will engage in identification of different cell and tissue types. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.
