Unformatted text preview: COMPARATIVE ORGANOLOGY LABORATORY SYLLABUS for APC 100/NPB 123 L. J. Faulkin M. J. Guinan D. M. Hyde C. G. Plopper A. J. Weir 2004 COMPARATIVE ORGANOLOGY Course Objectives One of the goals of this course is to aid the student in developing an understanding of the manner in which the biological activities of different types of cells, when organized as tissues, or combined into organs, contribute to the functions of the organs and organ systems which comprise a vertebrate organism. The other goal is to compare the basic similarities and differences in the cellular organization of organs and organ systems between three classes of vertebrates: Osteichthyes (bony fishes); Aves (birds) and Mammalia (mammals). By the end of the course, students should understand: 1 The primary and secondary functions of each organ system and of the organs which compose them; 2 The organization of the four basic tissues in each organ and the role each tissue plays in the function of that organ; 3 The biological characteristics of the major cell types in each organ and the contribution of their unique biological characteristics to the functions of that organ; 4 The basic similarities and differences in the organization of tissues and organs in fish, birds and mammals to achieve the same functions for each organ system.

ORIENTATION TO THE BODY Terms of Position and Direction The principal terms of position and direction are used to describe the locations of organs and other structures as they exist in the whole animal. The terms are relative and are arranged in pairs. Identify the following on the specimens provided: Dorsal structures lie toward the back (dorsum) of the trunk or, by extension, toward the corresponding surface of the head or tail. Human term - Posterior . Ventral structures lie toward the belly (venter) or the corresponding surface of the head or tail. Human term - Anterior . Cranial structures lie toward the head (cranium). Human term - Superior . This term is not used for structures which are a part of the head. These structures are referred to as Rostral . Caudal structures lie toward the tail (cauda). Human term - Inferior ....
