You’ll undertake a comprehensive examination of mammalian physiology, with an emphasis on regulation of reproduction, lactation, fluid homeostasis and growth. This will give you insights into the processes underlying pain, stress and welfare of animals with great attention placed on current research and its implications for humans, production animals, feral animals and wildlife.
|Prerequisites and Restrictions|| You must satisfy the following requirement(s):
|Available semesters||Semester 2 2021|
What you will learn
After successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to:

- Understand physiological adaptions of animals to changes in the environment.
- Outline and interpret the physiology of pain and the measurement of stress in animals.
- Analyse critically scientific papers from research in mammalian physiology.
