Amcanion cyffredinol

On successful completion of the module, students will:

  1. Have a broad knowledge of the biology of fishes, based on a holistic philosophy: from molecule to whole organism.

  2. Understand fundamental physiological processes unique to the group, including osmoregulation, reproductive strategies, locomotion and control of density, Physiology of sensory systems, developmental biology of fish.

  3. Have a knowledge of whole organism aspects of fish biology, including, migration, population ecology, exploitation and aquaculture.

Cynnwys cwrs

The module is based on holistic concepts. The study of fish biology from molecule to whole organism. Topics included will be fish diversity and basal groups, evolution and developmental biology. Physiological mechanisms: sensory modalities, density regulation, adaptations to unusual environments: Deep sea, extreme environments. Reproductive physiology, endocrinology. Whole organism biology: Migration, population ecology and aquaculture.
