Unformatted text preview: COMPARATIVE ORGANOLOGY LECTURE SYLLABUS for APC 100 / NPB 123 2005 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. Textbook : Kardong, Kenneth V. Vertebrates: Comparative Anatomy, Function, Evolution , McGraw Hill, 3rd edition. Text is highly recommended, you will be referred to specific figures and text sections, but most of the material you will be responsible for is in the syllabi notes.
