Students in the biological and agricultural sciences are the audience for this text, which uses an integrative approach to understanding animals' individual organization as well as their collective interdependence. The contents proceed from discussion of genomic, molecular, and cellular processes to organ systems and whole-body phenomena such as acid-base balance, and energy balance and thermal physiology. The authors also incorporate a comparative approach, examining adaptation and diversity.

Yancey (biology, Whitman College). Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
