Intended for students in the biological and agricultural sciences, ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY has been written to promote the true conceptual understanding necessary to keep pace with today's rapid advances in the biological sciences. ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY takes an "integrative systems" approach, designed to illustrate the individual organization as well as the collective interdependence of each complete physiological system. The text begins with chapters on integrative principles and on the genomic, molecular, and cellular basis of physiology, then proceeds to chapters on individual organ systems. For each organ system, evolutionary forces as well as current cellular and molecular research are…
