Animal Tissues: Types, Structure & Function

1. Animal Tissues: Types, Structure & Function

Ever use tissues? Well, your body certainly does! Actually, four different kinds! They are the epithelial tissue, muscle tissue, nervous tissue, and connective tissue. This lesson goes over the basics of these tissues.

Animal Body Plans: Classifications and Features

2. Animal Body Plans: Classifications and Features

The Animal Kingdom is diverse and complex. How do we make sense of it all? Scientists use body plans to classify and organize the animals of Earth, making it much easier to differentiate between them.

Overview of Animal Reproduction and Development

3. Overview of Animal Reproduction and Development

At this stage in life, you likely know where babies come from. However, did you know that some animals can make clones of themselves and reproduce sexually too? In this lesson, you'll learn more about sexual reproduction and early vertebrate development.

Comparing Organ Systems of Humans & Other Animals

4. Comparing Organ Systems of Humans & Other Animals

In this lesson, you're going to learn that in some ways humans are just like any other animal, and in other ways we are quite unique. We will compare the cardiovascular, respiratory, and digestive systems of many animals.

Social Behavior of Animals

5. Social Behavior of Animals

Why does that squirrel flap its tail when your dog gets close to the tree? Or why are you more willing to donate a kidney to a sibling than a stranger? Learn about these and other behaviors that come along with living in a social group.

The Circadian Rhythm

6. The Circadian Rhythm

You wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night. But some animals do the opposite: wake at night and sleep during the day. What determines the time of day you're active is your circadian rhythm, an internal clock that keeps daily time for you.

How Animals Communicate: Chemical, Visual & Electrical Signals

7. How Animals Communicate: Chemical, Visual & Electrical Signals

Animals use a variety of different signals to communicate with each other. In this lesson you'll identify the different types of communication signals and the situations in which they might be most useful.

Animal Behavior: Innate vs. Learned

8. Animal Behavior: Innate vs. Learned

There are some things that animals are born knowing how to do. These behaviors are innate. They are different than learned behaviors, which an animal must pick up through training, observation or experience. Learn more about these types of behaviors.

Interspecific Competition, Competitive Exclusion & Niche Differentiation

9. Interspecific Competition, Competitive Exclusion & Niche Differentiation

What happens when two similar species that consume the same resources occupy the same space? Interspecific competition, that's what! Watch our video lesson to learn about the outcomes of this ecological battle.

Predator/Prey Interactions, Camouflage, Mimicry & Warning Coloration

10. Predator/Prey Interactions, Camouflage, Mimicry & Warning Coloration

You probably know that skunks can be quite stinky, bees sting and monarch butterflies are pretty, but do you know why? This lesson will introduce you to the reasons why some animals look or act the way they do and how these things relate to the predator/prey relationship.

Symbiotic Relationships: Mutualism, Commensalism & Parasitism

11. Symbiotic Relationships: Mutualism, Commensalism & Parasitism

If your cat or dog has ever had fleas, you've witnessed symbiosis in action. In this lesson, learn the many types of symbiosis in biology, and how these relationships can have a positive, negative, or neutral effect on the individual species.
