Literature review, problem solving, in field practice. The practical lessons will focus on the deepening of the topics developed during the theoretical lessons.
For the morphological adaptations related to locomotion, lessons will be carried out on the different bones of
the thoracic, pelvic limb, vertebral column, and head of terrestrial mammals of different orders and
families. In addition, some skin appendages related to defense and locomotion (horns, hoof) will also be
examined. These lessons will be held in the anatomy classroom of the Institute of Anatomy of Domestic Animals.
In the dissection room, will be held practical lessons related to the adaptations of the:
-digestive system with examination of the main viscera of mono and polygastrics of different orders and
families (stomach; forestomach; liver, intestine).
- respiratory system with examination of lungs and hearts.
For the physiological adaptation to environmental changes, theoretical lessons will be associated with on field practice focusing on the different phases of the translocation process: from animal transport, housing, handling to release strategies and post-release monitoring.
