    Environmental Physiology of Animals 2nd Edition

    Environmental Physiology of Animals 2nd Edition
    by Pat Willmer, Ian Johnston, Graham Stone



    Pub. Date: December 2004
    Publisher: --
    Format: Textbook Hardcover, 754pp
    ISBN-13: 9781405107242
    ISBN: 1405107243
    Edition Number: 22
    Edition Description: REV

    Description

    Authors Willmer (biology, U. of St. Andrews), Stone (biology, U. of Edinburgh) and Johnston (biology, U. of St. Andrews) take a holistic approach in this undergraduate text, integrating animals' physiology with their environment and adaptive behavior. They begin with basic principles such as adaptation and its mechanisms, and problems of size and scale. They examine comparative physiology such as water, ions and osmotic physiology, water balance, metabolism, respiration, circulation, and temperature. They also describe how animals cope with their environment in seas, shorelines and estuaries, fresh water and other aquatic environments, and in normal and extreme terrestrial life as well as in parasitic habitats. For this edition they have added chapters covering sensory and motor systems and hormonal control, and updated illustrations.

    The new and updated edition of this accessible text provides a comprehensive overview of the comparative physiology of animals within an environmental context.
    Includes two brand new chapters on Nerves and Muscles and the Endocrine System.
    Discusses both comparative systems physiology and environmental physiology.
    Analyses and integrates problems and adaptations for each kind of environment: marine, seashore and estuary, freshwater, terrestrial and parasitic.
    Examines mechanisms and responses beyond physiology.
    Applies an evolutionary perspective to the analysis of environmental adaptation.
    Provides modern molecular biology insights into the mechanistic basis of adaptation, and takes the level of analysis beyond the cell to the membrane, enzyme and gene.

    Incorporates more varied material from a wide range of animal types, with less of a focus purely on terrestrial reptiles, birds and mammals and rather more about the spectacularly successful strategies of invertebrates.
