Wyse, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Margaret Anderson, Smith College. The Energetics of Aerobic Activity. Molecules and Cells in Animal Physiology. The book takes an entirely fresh approach to each topic. Ladd Prosser's Comparative Animal Physiology. Concepts and integrative themes are emphasized while giving students the specifics they need. Always, the central organizing principle for the array of topics presented is to understand whole animals in the environments where they live.
Amidst Chegg's inventory of available titles, this edition is a top 1,000 book, indicating its reputation and usefulness. You can request instructor access via your Sinauer Associates account representative. With this edition, coverage of physiologically relevant genomics has been greatly expanded. Kidneys and Excretion with Notes on Nitrogen Excretion. Instructor Resources to accompany Animal Physiology, Fourth Edition, by Richard W.
Animal Physiology; Adaptation and Environment. A very interesting account of an important subject. Its full-color illustrations include many novel, visually-effective features to help students learn. The proteins bind to the invariant Fc region of the antibody and are called Fc receptors. The general topics examined include: respiration; acid base balance; osmoregulation; water and ionic exchanges; nutrient acquisition and absorption; nitrogen and sulfur metabolism; locomotion; sensory information and behaviour; energy metabolism; and temperature and evolution. Epithelial Secretion of Water and Electrolytes--Edited by J.
These can be assigned by the instructor or used as self-quizzes. For all three authors, teaching physiology to undergraduate students has been a lifelong priority. This book brings this new information together. Animals and Environments: Function on the Ecological Stage. Still the best text on animal physiology.
This is the proceedings of a symposium held in Maryland, September 1989. Wyse, Margaret Anderson Animal Physiology presents all the branches of modern animal physiology with a strong emphasis on integration of physiological knowledge, ecology, and evolutionary biology. It is a very readable and interesting account and presents essential information in a clear and informative manner. This edition includes a new chapter on cancer and a new section on the immune system. With their contemporary approach, scholarly editing, flexible format, and detailed contents, Neural and Integrative Animal Physiology and Environmental and Metabolic Animal Physiology will stand together as the authoritative source in the field. Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Internal Transport at Work: Diving by Marine Mammals.
There are nearly two hundred new references, chosen with an emphasis on recent developments. The book's extensive coverage of genomics and cellular-molecular biology is therefore carefully linked to whole-animal biology. The Physiology of Psychological Disorders; Schizophrenia, Depression, Anxiety and Substance Abuse--By J. Animal Physiology, Fourth Edition, presents all the branches of modern animal physiology with a strong emphasis on integration of physiological knowledge, ecology, and evolutionary biology. The book is committed to a comparative approach throughout. Each of the 25 main chapters starts with a brief animal example to engage student interest and demonstrate the value of the material that will be learned. From the study of genetically replicating molecules to investigations of adaptive modulation, these two companion volumes offer an all-encompassing view of the field.
The whole animal is the principal focus of this book. Taking an integrated approach to the basics of anatomy and physiology, the book helps readers understand their interconnection in common domestic species. The topic is addressed from the viewpoint of scientists representing a variety of disciplines and approaches. Whereas mammalian physiology is consistently treated in depth, emphasis is also given to the other vertebrate groups, arthropods, and molluscs. This site is designed to help you review and master key concepts, facts, and terminology from the textbook and to expand on the coverage of selected topics. Erythroeyte Band 3 Protein---By J.
Comparative Animal Physiology is internationally regarded as the authoritative source on comparative animal physiology. The 54 papers in this volume discuss the properties of the different receptors, the development of selective synthetic agonists and antagonists, the nature and role of phosphodiesterases and their inhibitors. The book is aimed at upper level college students and graduate students of comparative physiology. Written by an international group of experts, this book contains fresh approaches, with completely new treatment of the original topics and the addition of new chapters: Muscle plasticity Membranes and Metabolism Oxygen Sensing Endocrine Disruption Pain Perception Cardiac Regeneration Neuronal Regeneration Two decades after the publication of the first edition, this book remains the only published single-volume work on fish physiology. Student resources for this title are available on the Companion Website:. Integrating Systems at Work: Animal Navigation.
