BIO-3008 Animal Physiology - 20 ECTS
Explain the general principles of function in individual tissues/organs and how they are integrated in the organism. Explain how the functions of organs are modified and adapted in organisms living in different environments. Demonstrate and explain how physiological mechanisms may limit or potentiate the process of adaptation. Present and explain typical examples of physiological adaptations to special environments with respect to nutrition, energetics, locomotion, circulation, respiration, water- and salt balances and neuronal and sensory orientation
Review and communicate, both orally and in writing, current knowledge from the recommended reading/syllabus. Teach Animal Physiology at Bachelor- and MSc levels and communicate own research at MSc level
Apply the knowledge and information which is required to plan own research in Animal Physiology at the PhD level. Review and extract relevant scientific literature in the process of presenting and discussing own research (MSc) findings. Analyze and criticize scientific research within own (MSc) discipline
one oral 30 min presentation of a given topic from the recommended reading/syllabus (Hill et al., Animal Physiology).
There will be a re-sit examination for students that did not pass the previous ordinary examination.
