A comparative physiology course intended for BSc students. The course is meant as follow up of the general physiology course and proposes up to date knowledge about comparative physiology. The structure function relationships of different organs will be approached considering also evolutionary aspects. Some examples in the animal kingdom will be exploited. The aim of the course is to promote a logical approach across the borders of various biological disciplines, a prerequisite to understand physiology.
