Summary

Principles of Animal Physiologycombines clear explanations and a superior art program to set a new standard for animal physiology textbooks. With thorough coverage of the cellular and molecular basis of animal physiology, an overarching evolutionary theme, and an emphasis on the integration of physiological systems, Christopher Moyes and Patricia Schulte present animal physiology in a current, balanced, and accessible way, allowing readers to understand and retain the information. Large, carefully designed, full-color artwork guides readers through complex systems and processes while in-text pedagogical tools help them learn and remember the material. The book includes the most up-to-date research on animal genetics and genomics, methods and models, and offers a broad range of vertebrate and invertebrate examples, with a reader-friendly writing style that is consistently clear and engaging.Introduction to Physiological Principles, Chemistry of Life, Cell Metabolism and Physiology, Hormones and Cell Signaling, Neuron Structure and Function, Cellular Movement and Muscles, Sensory Systems, Functional Organization of Nervous Systems, Circulatory Systems, Respiratory Systems, Ion and Water Balance, Digestion, Locomotion, Thermal Biology, Reproduction.For all readers interested in learning the principles of animal physiology.
