Course Descriptions ZOO

ZOOLOGY (ZOO)

Updated for 2013-2014

ZOOL 101 Principles of Zoology (4)

An introduction to the study of animal life. Basic principles of biology are covered including the role of plants as primary producers of chemical energy. The mechanisms of digestion, circulation, osmoregulation, excretion, locomotion, nerve action and reproduction in representative animals are discussed. The chemical and cellular mechanisms involved in the transmission of inheritance are studied. The evolution of plant and animal life, the interaction of organisms in their environment, food chains and trophic levels, and ecological distributions are introduced. Representative animal phyla including both invertebrates and vertebrates are studied from the viewpoint of systematics and structural characters. This course is designed to provide the student with basic information and vocabulary in preparation for advanced courses in zoology and biology. Class meets for 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of lab per week. (DB+DY)

Three lecture and three lab hours per week.

Prerequisite: ENG 21 and 22 with a grade of C or better or equivalent.

ZOOL 200 Marine Biology (4)

An introduction to Hawaiian marine animals and plants, their ecological relationships, structures and systematics. Various shallow water habitats on O‘ahu, including tidepools, mudflats and coral reefs, are explored on field trips. Class meets for 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of laboratory or field work per week. (DB+DY)

Prerequisite: ENG 21 and ENG 22 with a grade of C or better or equivalent.

Three lecture and three lab hours per week.

Rec Preparation: ZOOL 101.

ZOOL 240 Human Anatomy and Physiology (4)

First semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. ZOOL 240 covers gross anatomy, histology, and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous systems, with particular emphasis on the physiology of muscular contraction and nerve signaling. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. ZOOL 240 includes a lab component which will include the use of anatomical models and preserved animal dissections and physiology exercises. (DB+DY)

Three lecture and three lab hours per week.

Prerequisite: ENG 100 with a grade of C or better or equivalent; CHEM 151B or CHEM 161B or BIOC 241 with a grade of C or better, or 1 year of high school college-prep chemistry with a grade of B or better within the last 5 years.

Corequisite: Concurrent or prior credit in HLTH 125.

Rec Preparation: (Strongly recommended) MICR 130 or BIOL 101 with a grade of B or better.

ZOOL 241 Human Anatomy and Physiology (4)

Zoology 241 is the second semester of a comprehensive two-semester course which provides a thorough introduction to the structure and function of the human body. ZOOL 241 covers gross anatomy, histology, physiology of the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive systems, as well as basic concepts of inheritance and development. Students will be expected to learn details of anatomy and physiology as well as applying those details in the broader context of whole body function and homeostasis. ZOOL 241 includes a lab component which will include the use of anatomical models and preserved animal dissections and physiology exercises.(DB+DY)

Three lecture and three lab hours per week.

Prerequisite: ZOOL 240 with a grade of C or better.
