BIO 323 Fish Biology

4 Credit(s) Q W
Students will explore the structure, systematics and function of fishes. The biology of locally important species is emphasized, but the global diversity of freshwater and marine fishes is examined. Instruction is through lectures, discussions, and hands-on experiences that include dissection, use of dichotomous keys, and developing/conducting an experiment examining in-depth the physiological function of at least one organ system. Required weekend field trips may be scheduled. Three lecture hours and one three-hour laboratory per week.
