In this revised, updated, two-color edition of the acclaimed text Animal Physiology, Knut Schmidt-Nielsen introduces and develops the fundamental principles of animal physiology according to major environmental features--oxygen, food and energy, temperature, and water. The book is structured the same as the previous edition, but every chapter has been updated to take into account recent developments, with numerous new references and figures. New and expanded features include: extensive modifications to the chapter on Movement, Muscle and Biomechanics; new material on respiratory pigments; feeding and digestion in shrimp and hoatzin; plant defense compounds; diving in seals; high temperature tolerance; the patch clamp method for ion channel research; the pineal gland and melatonin. Two-color throughout for clear description and illustration of fundamental principles.

Mit diesem Buch liegt nunmehr die deutsche Fassung des weltweit geschAtzten Lehrbuches zur Physiologie der Tiere von Knut Schmidt-Nielsen vor. Die prAgnante Darstellung von Fakten und der klare Stil sind sein Markenzeichen. Was zeichnet ein gut lesbares Lehrbuch aus, mit dem man sich exzellent auf PrA1/4fungen vorbereiten kann? Nicht die FA1/4lle an Fakten, sondern eine klare und gut verstAndliche Darstellung sowie die MAglichkeit, sich ZusammenhAnge selbst zu erschlieAen und so in dieses Wissensnetz Fakten einzubauen. Diesen Anspruch vermag Schmidt-Nielsen in seinem bereits in der 5. englischen Auflage vorliegenden Lehrbuch auf exzellente Weise zu erfA1/4llen. Der Schwerpunkt des Buches liegt auf den Grundprinzipien der Funktion von Organen und Geweben. Das Wissen der Physiologie erschlieAt sich somit A1/4ber die ZusammenhAnge mit den Akologischen Parametern Sauerstoff, Nahrung und Energie, Temperatur und Wasser -- und das aus einer Hand. Knut Schmidt-Nielsen ist emeritierter Professor fA1/4r Tierphysiologie an der Duke University in Durham. Er ist Mitglied der National Academy of Sciences und erhielt 1992 den International Prize for Biology, das japanische A"quivalent des Nobel-Preises.

Adaptation to Environment: Essays on the Physiology of Marine Animals contains a series of essays that is intended as a review of the special adaptations of marine organisms to the particular environmental conditions they are likely to encounter in the natural habitat. This book emphasizes developments in physiology of marine animals and on approaches to the study of the adaptations of marine organisms. This compilation also interprets the term “Physiology in its widest sense to include all aspects of the functioning of the organism from the behavior of animals to the mode of function of enzymes. For this reason, structural adaptations have been reviewed in detail only where their functional role is understood and where they constitute a specific adaptation to defined environmental conditions. This publication benefits students and individuals conducting research on the physiology of marine animals.

Über die Entstehung der Arten (englisch: On the Origin of Species) ist das Hauptwerk des britischen Naturforschers Charles Darwin (1809–1882). Es wurde am 24. November 1859 veröffentlicht und gilt als grundlegendes Werk der Evolutionsbiologie. Der vollständige Titel lautete: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Darwin bearbeitete insgesamt sechs Auflagen. In der sechsten Auflage (1872) lautete der Kurztitel The Origin of Species. Darwin legte in diesem Werk zahlreiche Belege für seine Theorie vor, dass sich Tier- und Pflanzenarten durch natürliche Selektion im Laufe langer Zeiträume verändern und dass alle heute existierenden Lebewesen von gemeinsamen Vorfahren abstammen. Bereits auf seiner Weltreise mit der HMS Beagle (1831–1836) hatte Darwin Belege für die Evolutionstheorie gesammelt. Später vermehrte er seine Erkenntnisse durch Experimente und wissenschaftliche Korrespondenz. (aus wikipedia.de)

Here is a uniquely modern approach to the study of physiological diversity that builds on the tradition established by C. Ladd Prosser's Comparative Animal Physiology. Responding to the need for a rigorously up-to-date, comprehensive survey of function and integrative systems in a variety of species, which is also easily accessible to the user, Dr. Prosser has delivered a thoroughly revised Fourth Edition in a convenient two-volume format. This carefully designed framework lets each volume zero-in on distinct aspects of comparative physiology normally studied as a whole unit. From the study of genetically replicating molecules to investigations of adaptive modulation, these two companion volumes offer an all-encompassing view of the field. With their contemporary approach, scholarly editing, flexible format, and detailed contents, Neural and Integrative Animal Physiology and Environmental and Metabolic Animal Physiology will stand together as the authoritative source in the field.

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.

Encyclopedia of Deserts represents a milestone: it is the first comprehensive reference to the first comprehensive reference to deserts and semideserts of the world. Approximately seven hundred entries treat subjects ranging from desert survival to the way deserts are formed. Topics include biology (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, invertebrates, plants, bacteria, physiology, evolution), geography, climatology, geology, hydrology, anthropology, and history. The thirty-seven contributors, including volume editor Michael A. Mares, have had extensive careers in deserts research, encompassing all of the world’s arid and semiarid regions. The Encyclopedia opens with a subject list by topic, an organizational guide that helps the reader grasp interrelationships and complexities in desert systems. Each entry concludes with cross-references to other entries in the volume, inviting the reader to embark on a personal expedition into fascinating, previously unknown terrain. In addition a list of important readings facilitates in-depth study of each topic. An exhaustive index permits quick access to places, topics, and taxonomic listings of all plants and animals discussed. More than one hundred photographs, drawings, and maps enhance our appreciation of the remarkable life, landforms, history, and challenges of the world’s arid land.
