The means by which living things put together or break down complex molecules and derive energy will be the foundation for the course. Some of these processes will be universal whilst others may be specific to plants, animals or subsets thereof. Movement, transport, and signaling will be added to the basic physiological framework. Adaptations to variations in environment will segue into physiological ecology, which will integrate all course content in the context of nature’s laboratory – complex ecosystems.
