Welcome to Advanced Physiology of Domestic Animals
First-time visitors should read these short paragraphs before proceeding:
is important that you realize how the content of these pages is
organized and the logic behind the organization. When you click on a
topic below, you will be taken to a new page where the specific content
is organized into two sections: Statements of Fact (SOF) and External
1) The SOF are presented as
propositions (because this is how your brain stores knowledge) and
therefore no paragraphs will be presented in this section. This saves
typing and you don't have to read all the miscellaneous words that make
paragraphs flow (sorry, English instructors!). I suggest you read these
articles on propositions in cognitive theory and their use in the construction of concept maps. Here is another good article on concept maps.
If you read the propositions aloud,
they will become a part of your knowledge domains. If you can construct
a concept map on a specific topic, you are an advanced learner!
2) The EL will feature web pages (and images, where appropiate) that
provide further information on the selected
topic. It is important to realize that I have no control over EL and
therefore, their content may disappear or change without my knowledge (this is a disclaimer).
I will purge links to web sites that become unavailable or change their
content to uselessness. This purging will happen once I realize that
things have changed--so you may see things change before I do! If you
see it happen before I do, drop me a
line at ------firstname.lastname@example.org----Thanks!
