Ecological Physiology
0.5 Credit

This integrative course examines the physiological adaptations used by prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms to survive within their environment. Areas of focus may include extreme habitats (high altitude, deserts, the deep sea as well as pH, temperature and salinity), degraded environments, seasonal or other variations, and the impact of climate change or other conditions that alter ecological conditions and require animals to alter their physiology.
