Physiology of marine animals with emphasis on comparisons between marine vertebrates and humans. Focus on physiological processes including gas exchange, circulation, osmoregulation, metabolism, thermoregulation, endocrine, neural control and sensory systems. Lectures and laboratories illustrate the methodology, analysis techniques, and written reporting of physiological research.)Prerequisites: AP biology, introductory biology, or consent of the instructor, and introductory chemistry. Instructor: Wise

**This is a lab/field course: Students will spend time out in the field and on the boat visiting diverse habitats in and around Beaufort. Students will visit salt marshes and seagrass beds and snorkel the local jetties. Dissections will include vertebrate and invertebrate organs.

This course fulfills the structure/function requirement for Biology majors and the Organismal Structure/Function requirement for Environmental Science majors (BS) and the marine science section for Environmental Science and Policy Majors (AB).
