Download e-book for kindle: Animal Osmoregulation (Oxford Animal Biology Series) by Tim Bradley

By Tim Bradley

Water is key to lifestyles and all metabolic reactions are prompted by way of the aqueous surroundings during which they happen. Osmoregulation and water stability are for that reason completely crucial subject matters in animal body structure. Animal Osmoregulation collates a largely dispersed literature to provide a finished and authoritative synthesis of the sphere, supplying precise examples of osmoregulatory strategies on the organismal, organ and mobile point. It contains transparent heritage details on ion legislation and delivery (specifically within the gentle of contemporary molecular reports) and illustrates the actual rules to which every organism needs to adhere, in addition to the phylogenetic constraints in which it needs to function. As with different titles within the Oxford Animal Biology sequence, the subject is addressed utilizing examples from in the course of the animal country, opting for universal subject matters that go beyond taxonomy.
