Based on over 20 years of teaching experience in animal nutrition, this study guide will enhance learning basic food animal nutritional principles.

In this introductory text, six fundamental nutrients, their structure, digestion, and metabolism are covered. A brief introduction to bioenergetics, feed additives, nutrient analysis, digestive organs and processes in monogastric and ruminant animals, and methods for assessing nutrient utilization are also included.

Each chapter is illustrated with a new terms box, key points, and review questions.

This study guide is an essential learning tool for undergraduate students majoring in animal sciences, veterinary medicine, or other related disciplines.

Global exploration in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries radically changed Western science, orienting philosophies of natural history to more focused fields like comparative anatomy, botany, and geology. In the United States, European scientific advances and home-grown ventures like the Wilkes Exploring Expedition to Antarctica and the Pacific inspired new endeavors in cartography, ethnography, zoology, and evolutionary theory, replacing rigid models of thought and classification with more fluid and active systems. They inspired literary authors as well. This class will examine some of the most remarkable of these authors--Herman Melville (Moby-Dick and "The Encantadas"), Henry David Thoreau (Walden), Sarah Orne Jewett (Country of the Pointed Firs), Edith Wharton (House of Mirth), Toni Morrison (A Mercy), among others--in terms of the subjects and methods they adopted, imaginatively and often critically, from the natural sciences.

Welcome to the OER Activity Pool for a General Biology II laboratory Due to COVID, the nature of the labs has shifted from face-to-face to a virtual/online format. The instructors have pivoted and began to develop virtual lab modules. Over the next year, they will continue to update and develop both face-to-face and virtual labs.Two faculty members have worked to create a repository of materials that can be used in place of a textbook, photo atlas, and lab manual. The faculty members are working on the exercises to create alternative laboratory exercises for each content piece.  The content is constantly being updated to reflect revisions based on student feedback and student data analysis. The objectives for each exercise align with the majority of the publisher's Student Learning Objectives. The material is organized by content (subject matter) in modules. Each Module will contain 1) the different versions of the exercises 2) Teacher Material and 3) Student Material

In this course, the student will gain a broad understanding of zoology. The course will begin with an introduction to and definition of zoology, followed by a look at the history and evolution of animals. This course will also cover taxonomy, comparative anatomy, and the physiology of animals, as well as animal ecology: the interaction of animals with one another and with their environment. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: have a comprehensive knowledge of zoology and its relationship with other fields of biology; compare and contrast anatomical and physiological characteristics of vertebrates and invertebrates; answer specific questions about zoogeography, geologic time scale, animal evolution, and paleontology; define, identify, and describe the different body systems; apply this knowledge for further study in any biological fields that involves animals.
