GENERAL PHYSIOLOGY - BIL 265

Welcome to General Physiology,
a 14-week Tour of the Workings of Animal Metabolism.

Class meets from 9:30 - 10:45am every Tuesday and Thursday in LC 140.

An Arctic Hare (Lepus timidus) exchanges her winter coat for summer pelage,
part of her acclimatization to the changing seasons.
This marvel is made possible by the animal's PHYSIOLOGY:
a result of biochemistry, environmental influence, and evolution.
