Animal Physiology: an environmental perspective

Overview

Animal Physiology: An Environmental Perspective provides a broad review of animal physiology, demonstrating how an understanding of the physiology of animals in their natural habitats helps us to understand how and why animals evolved the way they did, as well as how we can protect them from the extreme effects of changes to their environments.The only text to take an evolutionary approach to show how physiological systems allow animals to adapt to their changing environmentsThe main narrative focuses on key concepts, and panels expand on particular topics or themes, helping students to grasp difficult concepts in a progressive, layered way.A robust yet accessible introduction to the physical and chemical properties of the environments in which animals live helps students to avoid a superficial or confused understanding of this often challenging aspect of the subjectCarefully chosen examples illustrate how different groups of animals have evolved different solutions to deal with the environmental problems they faceThe exploration of real world issues such as climate change and pollution from the point of view of their physiological effects on animals shows how our understanding of such topics can be translated into new approaches to conservation.This title is available as an eBook. Please contact your Sales and Learning Resource Consultant for more information.

Reviews

The emphasis on the environmental factors influencing physiological processes and the link from this to adaption to change is particularly helpful. * Dr Debbie Bartlett, University of Greenwich * The descriptions and explanations are excellent...the best I have read in a long time. * Professor William Velhagen, New York University * Very clearly explained. Easy and enjoyable to read. * Dr Sheena Cotter, University of Lincoln *
