Module overview

This module provides insight in various aspects of adaptive animal physiology including the regulation of immunity, circulation, reproduction, osmotic state, respiration, body temperature, and developmental transitions. The way that these systems have evolved adaptive differences across the animal kingdom is a topic of particular interest. A second major focus is concerned with the regulatory principles that allow individual animals to adjust their physiological systems to cope with changes in their environment.
