Fourth Edition

Richard W. Hill, Gordon A. Wyse & Margaret Anderson

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. Integration extends from genes to organ systems and from one physiological discipline to another.

Description

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. Integration extends from genes to organ systems and from one physiological discipline to another.

Complex principles are developed clearly using classroom-tested pedagogy, often with carefully designed conceptual illustrations. Concepts from chemistry, physics, and mathematics are explained so that the book will be accessible to science students at the sophomore or higher level.

Features

  • Key updates, expanded discussions, improved organization, and additional pedagogical aids are featured in this new edition, with specific attention paid to the introductory chapter, and the chapters on physiological development and epigenetics, nutrition and digestion, thermal relations, sensory processes, endocrinology, animal navigation, control of movement, muscle, breathing, and osmoregulation
  • Greatly enhanced genomics content is incorporated into all relevant chapters
  • All figures were reviewed for pedagogical effectiveness; more than 100 figures or tables have been revised, and thirty-three new figures incorporated
  • All chapters have been updated based on the latest literature and terminology
