From the reviews: “This book is the result of a symposium entitled ‘Light from the underground: Challenges and insights in the third decade of research on subterranean rodents,’ held during the International Mammalogical Congress IX in Sapporo . provides a set of important tidbits, factoids, pieces of general information, and current hypotheses relevant to the topic at hand. . The conference, which was sponsored by the Interunion Commission on Comparative Physiology representing the International Unions of Biological Sciences, Physiological Sciences, and Pure and Applied Biophysics, brought together scientists from various fields to discuss the widely scattered information on primitive mammals from the perspective of comparative physiology.1/5(1). 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.4/5(1). The International Space Station provides a unique environment in which to study the effects of microgravity and the space environment on various organisms. Rodents. (rats and mice) are the animal models most commonly used to study fundamental biological processes in space: predominately rats, followed by Size: 1MB.
Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume Environmental Physiology covers the physiological mechanisms in living organisms. This book discusses the circadian system properties and the control of secretion in reptilian salt glands. This book Book Edition: 1. Part of the Advances in Comparative and Environmental Physiology book series (COMPARATIVE, volume 4) Abstract In I reviewed the thermoregulation of those groups of mammals that retain archaic or conservative characteristics, the so-called primitive mammals (Orders: Monotremata, Marsupiala, Insectivora, Edentata, Pholidota and Hyracoidae Cited by: Primitive mammals have been reported as having unusually variable body temperatures, in some cases being referred to as “approximately Poikilothermic” (Britton and Atkinson, ); consequently there are difficulties associated with determining the “normal or desired” range of temperatures. These difficulties, most often, are related to Cited by: Complex neuroendocrine networks co-ordinate the regulation of reproduction, integrating a wide range of internal and external environmental inputs and signals. GnRH, the principal regulator of reproduction, integrates cues from sex steroids, stress, glucocorticoids, nutritional and metabolic status, prolactin and other peptides, to controls gonadotropin Cited by: 7.
In this way, physiology is for the first time properly integrated with ecological principles and with behavioural responses used by animals in coping with environmental book provides a stand-alone core text for undergraduate courses in comparative physiology, animal physiology, or environmental physiology, but also provides key material for integrating across modules in any environmental biology by: You don't enjoy a book like Rodent. You endure it which by no means is a criticism. You are torn along through the life of the main character, Isabelle, and her life is hard and awful. She is a survivor and you always know she will be. In some respects, you read it hoping for the happy ending. It ended a little to well for all the grimy lead up/5. The Laboratory Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Hamster, and Other Rodents is a single volume, comprehensive book sanctioned by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), covering the rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil and other rodents often used in research. This well-illustrated reference won a PROSE Award for Best Single Volume . v Introduction The textbook Principles of Plant Science: Environmental Factors and Technology in Growing Plants provides a unique plant science text that emphasizes understanding the role of the environment in plant growth and development instead of the more traditional focus topics of analyzing the industries and surveying important Size: KB.
