Animal Biology - (30 credits)

The module introduces key biological concepts and principles providing the foundation for future studies. It is also designed to develop students' understanding of the relationship between structure and function in a range of animal species, by exploring the anatomical diversity and physiological control of the major body systems. The study of a gross anatomy is based primarily on careful dissections coupled with close histological observations to give students a deeper understanding of the relations of structures and integrated functions. Animal Biology provides a theoretical basis for the practical husbandry covered in the Animal Husbandry module.
