BIOL 336 : Endotherms
Lectures will introduce students to topics of importance to the study of birds and mammals. 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 birds and mammals of the world in lectures.
