Discuss metabolic scaling. Think about all factors that contribute to metabolism and how these change with body size. For simplicity, use the prairie dog and bison as your examples.

Explain how the nervous system works. Start with the resting potential, describe a stimulus, and continue until the signal has affected a motor neuron. Be very specific.
We have discussed the blubber in whales a few times. With regard to the topics discussed, how does the breeding season fast affect whales and their blubber. Consider all physiological relevant topics.
