DESCRIPTION

Principles of Animal Physiology combines clear explanations, a superior art program, and a comprehensive supplements package to set a new standard for animal physiology textbooks. With thorough coverage of the cellular and molecular basis of animal physiology, an overarching evolutionary theme, and an emphasis on the integration of physiological systems, Christopher Moyes and Patricia Schulte present animal physiology in a current, balanced, and accessible way, allowing students to understand and retain the information. Large, carefully designed, full-color artwork guides students through complex systems and processes while in-text pedagogical tools help them learn and remember the material. The book includes the most up-to-date research on animal genetics and genomics, methods and models, and offers a broad range of vertebrate and invertebrate examples, with a student-friendly writing style that is consistently clear and engaging. Principles of Animal Physiology comes with a complete supplements package, including an Instructor's Resource CD-ROM, a Companion Website for students, and two optional media programs - PhysioEx (TM) laboratory simulations and InterActive Physiology tutorials - that can be packaged with the text at a discounted price.
