Day 4 of the meeting turned out to be pretty exciting for a comparative physiologist as well. The first session that I went to was called "RNASEQ approaches to understanding extreme physiological adaptations." Considering the Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology section business and dinner…
Don't forget to show your pride in comparative physiology at this year's EB. If you get caught wearing something that says "comparative physiology", "Dr. Dolittle", or "Life Lines," by one of the APS staffers or members of The American Physiological Society's Communications Committee, you just may…
Day 4 - Tuesday Dr. August Krogh is considered to be the founder of comparative physiology. We talked about the August Krogh Principle in my first entry. This principle states that ""for many problems there is an animal on which it can be most conveniently studied." Dr. Krogh recognized that many…

What exactly is meant by experimental biology? Im studying Biological Sciences and this sounds interesting.

The conference really sounds interesting but I'd love to know what Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology is?
