AUTHORITATIVE AND COMPLETE INFORMATION IN THE FIELD OF ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY

A THREEFOLD APPROACH TO TEACHING

Comparative Approach — Emphasizes basic mechanisms but allows patterns of physiological function in different species to demonstrate how evolution creates diversity. This approach encourages students to appreciate the underlying principles that govern physiological systems.
Experimental Emphasis — Helps students to understand the process of scientific discovery and shows how our knowledge of physiology continually increases.
Integrative Approach — Presents information about specific physiological systems at all levels of organization, from molecular interactions to interactions between an organism and its environment.
