Summary and Info
Eckert Animal Physiology is the essential text for courses exploring the structure, function and evolution of animals. The new Fourth Edition , revised, redesigned and updated, builds on Roger Eckert's earlier success in establishing this book as a classic. Comparing examples and experimental data across a wide variety of animal groups, the authors emphasize the book's central theme: how the bodies of animals function and how evolution has adapted them to their environment. Clear, balanced and beautifully illustrated, this book sets the standard of excellence in the field. " Animal Physiology develops the major ideas in a simple and direct manner...Examples are selected from a broad spectrum of animal life, ranging from protozoa at one end to our species and other vertebrates at the other end ...the authors have produced a balanced and up-to-date treatment of animal function." Entomologia Generalis Supplement: Transparency masters
