Animal Physiology: From Genes to Organisms 2nd Edition
This text is designed for mid- to upper-level under-graduate courses. Because this book may be the only exposure many undergraduate students will have to physiology beyond the introductory level, all aspects of physiology and many types of animals are covered. This text serves for general biology and zoology programs, preprofessional programs in animal husbandry, veterinary medicine and science, marine biology, and wildlife and fisheries biology, as well as for human health sciences.
Even the most tantalizing subject can be difficult to comprehend if not effectively presented. Thus, this book has a logical, understandable format with an emphasis on how each concept is an integral part of the entire subject. Too often, students view the components and functions of an animal as isolated entities; by understanding how each component depends on the others, students can appreciate the integrated functioning of the whole organism. Moreover, this text is designed to promote understanding of the basic principles and concepts of physiology rather than memorization of details. The text is written in simple, straightforward language, and every effort has been made to ensure smooth reading through good transitions, logical reasoning, and integration of ideas throughout the text.
