A sequence of two courses. In the first semester, students examine the anatomy and physiology of the support and control systems of the human body: skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine. In the second semester, students examine systems concerned with maintenance: cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. The relationship between structure and function and the concept of homeostasis are emphasized. Attention is given to clinical correlation and application of basic anatomical and physiological facts. Three hours of lecture and two hours of lab weekly. Successful completion of BIO 201 (D or better) is a prerequisite for BIO 202. These courses do not satisfy an elective requirement for biology majors. 4 credits each
