About the Course

While some species manage to live in a continuously changing environment and in different climates, others have a much narrower niche. On this course we focus on the physiological and morphological characteristics behind these variations. It is a second cycle course that requires basic previous knowledge in physiology, instead we will go more into details about adaptations to various habitats and how the physiology is affected by environmental factors like temperature, oxygen availability, pH and salinity. What physiological adaptations do we e.g. see in camels in the desert, fish in the Antarctic or mussels in the tidal zone? And how may these adaptations limit the expansion of species to other habitats?  We will also discuss how ongoing and future climate changes may affect the distribution and survival of species.

The pedagogy of the course is based on active participation by the students, with traditional lectures playing a minor part, in favour of group discussions, seminars and practical laborations. Examination is continuous throughout the course.
