Physiology, in contrast to anatomy, is the study of the body in its entirety and how the various components of the body interact to make the organism function as a whole. In Koi Physiology, the student will learn how all the bodily components of a Koi function and the effects of how outside influences occur on systems within the Koi. Because the study of physiology necessitates an understanding of the function of individual components of the body (anatomy), the studies of anatomy and physiology are inter-related.
