Fall 2021 (CSUSM)

BIO596-13 Insect Physiology and Biochemistry

This course is aimed at learning about insects as model organisms and the most numerous and most successful clade of invertebrates. The course will cover major physiological systems of insects – development, respiration, digestion and excretion, nervous and endocrine systems, locomotion, and thermal tolerance. Relations between these organ systems and processes and environmental and endocrine physiology of insects will be emphasized. The course will culminate in a novel insect-based research proposal relevant to the native or invasive insects of California.
