Animals at the extremes: The desert environment


Unit image

This unit is the first in a series of three on Animals at the extreme. It is concerned with the integration of behaviour anatomy, physiology and biochemistry in diverse vertebrates that live in deserts. Once you have completed this unit, you will be all the more able to appreciate the linked units that follow, Animals at the extreme: hibernation and torpor and Animals at the extreme: the polar environment. These units build on and develop some of the science you will study here.

This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Animal physiology (S324) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
