Learning Goals: Animal Anatomy And Physiology (Animal Husbandry I ) BAG101

Differentiate and describe the basic structure and function of cells and tissues of animals.
Explain the digestive system, in terms of both structure and function, of animals.
Explain the circulatory systems, in terms of both structure and function, of animals.
Explain the urinary system, in terms of structure and function, of animals.
Explain the nervous system, in terms of structure and function, of animals.
Explain the respiratory system, in terms of structure and function, of animals.
Explain the reproductive system, including structure and function, of animals.
Explain the skeletal system, in terms of structure and function of animals.
Explain the biological mechanisms underlying the growth and development of specified animal species.
Explain the endocrine system, in terms of structure and function, of animals.
Explain the muscular system, including the structure, function, and meat quality of animals.
Explain the differences between various types of farm animals, in terms of structure and function.
Explain the nature of animals in the primary production industry, with specific reference to your locality.
Practicals:

Identify parts of an animal cell on an unlabelled diagram.
Describe the major features of a living animal cell, including structure and function.
Describe one example, of cell interaction in live animals.
Describe the cell functions for three different types of cells in animals.
Differentiate between the cellular composition, using illustrations, of animal tissues.
Explain the functions of four different animal tissue types.
Describe the processes of nutrient and waste exchange in animal cells.
Label a diagram of the digestive system of three different animals.
Describe the processes occurring in digestion, in each section of the digestive system.
Compare the digestive systems of different farm animals.
Describe the action of enzymes and micro-organisms in animal digestion.
Explain the role of accessory organs, including: *the liver *the pancreas.
Explain the components of blood in animals.
Explain the biological functions of blood in animals.
Label on unlabelled illustrations, the parts of the circulatory system in a chosen farm animal.
Explain the structure of an artery by illustrating and labeling a diagram of its five layers.
Distinguish the characteristics of the various types of blood vessels in animals.
Explain the role of the lymphatic system in a specified farm animal.
Dissect an animal heart, and identify the parts of the heart on a photograph or the dissection.
Label on an unlabelled diagram, the parts of the urinary system of an animal.
Explain the role of the urinary system farm animals, including comments on urinary malfunction.
The term anatomy refers to the science that deals with the form and structure of animals. Physiology deals with the study of functions of the animal body or any of its parts. A thorough knowledge of the structure of an animal imparts a lot of information about the various functions it is capable of performing. This course is intended to give an overview of both the anatomy and physiology of many animals. It can be used as an introductory course to further studies; to help you understand how to diagnose disease or determine if an animal has sustained an injury; to help understand the physical capabilities or limitations of particular species; to understand what happens in the nutrition and growth processes; and to assist you to get better performance from your animals.Lesson Structure: Animal Anatomy and Physiology (Animal Husbandry I)
