FACULTY OF BIOTECHNOLOGY AND FOOD SCIENCES. SLOVAK UNIVERSITY OF AGRICULTURE IN NITRA. ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY perience in the field of animal physiology, it represents an attempt to provide students of that much of the book will be useful to students of animal husbandry . Physiological Ecology: How Animals Process Energy, Nutrients, and Toxins. William H. Karasov and Carlos Martínez del Rio. Princeton.

DM Current ornithology. Volume edited by R. This volume, with 31 contributors, gives full details of the design and construction of oxygen sensors, the effects of electrolytes and hydrogen sulphide on the oxygen sensors, laboratory applications in microrespirometers, calorimeters, automated systems applied to whole animals, blood and mitochondria and field application in lakes, ponds and the sea.

There has been an increase in the commercial availability of inexpensive oxygen measuring systems but many people make measurements without fully understanding the problems of calibration, interference and measurement of artefacts. Oxygen concentration per unit partial pressure is low in water and small concentration changes become apparent as large changes in pO 2 as signalled by the sensors. This makes the sensors times more sensitive to respiratory rates in water than in the same volume of air.

Associated Data

The basic physics of the oxygen electrode are fully described, together with the problems of diffusion of oxygen to the cathode, design of the electrode, and recent technological advances. This volume should be essential reading for those who use polarographic methods.

This is the first of a new series that is intended to continue and extend topics that have been discussed in Avian Biology. The subjects reviewed in the present volume are as follows: Comparative avian demography; Determination of clutch size in precocial birds; Structure and function of avian eggs; Origin of birds and of avian flight; the Great Plains hybrid zones; Species concepts and speciation analysis; Bird chromosomes; Genetic structure and avian systematics; Phylogeny and classification of birds based on the date of DNA-DNA hybridization; Experimental analysis of avian limb morphogenesis; Variation in mate fidelity in monogamous birds; Evolution of different bird migration.

The standard of the reviews is high and they will be useful to research students and researchers as well as those generally interested in problems of evolution. Avian endocrinology.

1st Edition

Environmental and ecological perspectives--edited by S. Distributed for Japan Scientific Societies Press. This volume contains a series of articles summarising the information and ideas on the endocrinology of birds. The main sections are: Anatomical and hormonal basis for avian endocrinological functions; Environmental manipulations of endocrine function; Ecological aspects of avian endocrinology.

The major developments that have taken place are the elucidation of the role of neurotensin, somatostatin, VIP, FSH, secretin, GRP, glucagon, insulin, C peptide, pancreatic polypeptide PP in the fowl and quail; More detailed analysis of the function of the pancreas, ovary adenohypophysis and pineal; Study of photo-refractoriness.

In many ways the developments that have taken place in mammalian endocrinology are reflected in the advances in avian endocrinology.

The volume is well produced and illustrated and provides a very useful summary of present knowledge of bird endocrinology. Animal physiology; adaptation and environment.

Integrative Physiology: Animal models of diabetes mellitus: Physiology and pathology. Plenum Press, New York.

The third edition of this well known text book with its emphasis on adaptation and he environment has been brought up to date. The accent of the book is still mainly on respiration, circulation, temperature control, metabolism, osmoregulation and excretion. These take up the first pages.

Animal physiology

Movement, information and integration nervous and hormonal have been expanded and take a further pages, though hormonal control only has 30 pages of this. Reproduction is omitted.

One answer would be for Professor Schmidt-Nielsen to write a companion volume with an endocrinologist co-author on endocrinology and reproduction. As most readers are aware, Animal Physiology is very readable, clear and didactic. The information is presented in a lucid and interesting manner with a quantitative analysis of the data always in the foreground. Possibly this could be emphasized in a later edition by including some questions at the end of each chapter.

A Text-Book of Animal Physiology

This new edition will do much to instruct and delight students of animal physiology. This volume provides up to date information on the structure of the breast; Mechanisms of milk secretion, regulation of mammary development and lactation; Hormonal control of mammary function; In vitro systems for the study of hormonal control of mammary gland growth and differentiation; Nutritional aspects of human lactation; The immunology of breast milk; Medical management of breast feeding; Infant problems, maternal problems, psychological problems in breast feeding; Drugs, toxins and environmental agents in breast milk; Lactation and contraception; Pregnancy, lactation and breast cancer.

The chapters are well written and illustrated with extensive bibliographies with full titles of papers. The volume will be useful to all those working on lactation as well as clinicians, and nutritionalists wishing to keep abreast of the subject.

Oxygen concentration per unit partial pressure is low in water and small concentration changes become apparent as large changes in pO 2 as signalled by the sensors.

The basic physics of the oxygen electrode are fully described, together with the problems of diffusion of oxygen to the cathode, design of the electrode, and recent technological advances.

This volume should be essential reading for those who use polarographic methods.Section 2 also consists of only one chapter and provides a detailed overview of key biochemical aspects of animal food.
