BIOL 331 : Vertebrate Ectotherms
Lectures will introduce students to topics of importance to the study of fishes, amphibians, and reptiles. In lecture, we will focus on anatomy, physiology, taxonomy, ecology, behavior, and conservation. In laboratories, we will focus on external anatomy, identification skills, habitat preferences, distribution, and collection techniques. Emphasis will be placed on the fauna in north Texas, but we will also discuss fishes, amphibians, and reptiles of the world in lectures.
