In this module, learners study the structure and function of gas exchange and transport systems in a range of animals and in terrestrial plants.
The significance of surface area to volume ratio in determining the need for ventilation, gas exchange and transport systems in multicellular organisms is emphasised. The examples of terrestrial green plants and a range of animal phyla are used to illustrate the principle.
Learners are expected to apply knowledge, understanding and other skills developed in this module to new situations and/or to solve related problems.
