Students will investigate the endocrine and paracrine signalling mechanisms that act to coordinate the
reorganization of tissues in animals in special situations. The topics covered will include metamorphosis in
fishes and amphibians, sex change in teleost fishes, limb regeneration in reptiles and amphibians, and
neural regeneration in birds and mammals. Aspects of naturally-occurring and artificially induced
transformations will be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to present papers on subjects of their
choice as part of the seminar component of this course.
