Learning objectives
Fornire agli studenti attraverso didattica frontale, esercitativa di laboratorio e di campo, tirocini stages strumenti di informazione, tecnologia, trasferimento tecnologico e cultura relativi alla Fisiologia degli animali domestici ed etologia e benessere animale. Il massimo potenziale didattico sarà espresso nella trattazione di argomenti fondamentali ed incisivi sulla formazione di un laureato in Allevamento e Benessere Animale: omeostasi e liquidi intracellulari ed extracellulari, fisiologia della cellula, dei tessuti ed organi, endocrinologia, fisiologia della nutrizione, riproduzione, lattazione, comportamento, legame degli animali specie specifico, interspecifico, rapporto diretto ed indiretto con l'uomo con il territorio caratterizzando con speciale riguardo agli spetti funzionali ed applicativi della biodiversità animale, della resistenza e della resilienza.
