Animal Osmoregulation (Oxford Animal Biology Series) by Tim Bradley

By Tim Bradley

Water is prime to existence and all metabolic reactions are stimulated by way of the aqueous surroundings within which they take place. Osmoregulation and water stability are consequently totally crucial issues in animal body structure. Animal Osmoregulation collates a greatly dispersed literature to provide a complete and authoritative synthesis of the sector, offering unique examples of osmoregulatory tactics on the organismal, organ and mobile point. It contains transparent history details on ion rules and delivery (specifically within the mild of modern molecular stories) and illustrates the actual ideas to which every organism needs to adhere, in addition to the phylogenetic constraints during which it needs to function. As with different titles within the Oxford Animal Biology sequence, the subject is addressed utilizing examples from through the animal state, settling on universal issues that go beyond taxonomy.
