Periods of environmental hypoxia (Low Oxygen Availability) are extremely common in aquatic systems due to both natural causes such as diurnal oscillations in algal respiration, seasonal flooding, stratification, under ice cover in lakes, and isolation of densely vegetated water bodies, as well as more recent anthropogenic causes (e.g. eutrophication). In view of this, it is perhaps not surprising that among all vertebrates, fish boast the largest number of hypoxia tolerant species; hypoxia has clearly played an important role in
The new edition has been significantly revised to include an expanded problem section at the end of each chapter with more quantitative examples and some clinical problems where appropriate. The clinical physiology chapter is now broken into several short chapters.
First published in France in 1825 and continuously in print ever since, "The Physiology of Taste" is a historical, philosophical, and ultimately Epicurean collection of recipes, reflections, and anecdotes on everything and anything gastronomical.
Fully illustrated, this work on anatomy and physiology of children contains comprehensive coverage of all developing systems.
This authoritative book gathers together a broad range of ideas and topics that define the field. It provides clear, concise, and comprehensive coverage of all aspects of cellular physiology from fundamental concepts to more advanced topics. The Third Edition contains substantial new material. Most chapters have been thoroughly reworked. The book includes chapters on important topics such as sensory transduction, the physiology of protozoa and bacteria, the regulation of cell division, and programmed cell death. Completely revised and updated -
Enhanced by new online video clips and animations, Kraemer's Exercise Physiology,combines research and theory with practical discussions of nutrition and training to help students understand how the human body works and responds to exercise. Through the authors' engaging, evidence-based, and practical approach, students not only gain a solid foundation in exercise physiology concepts, but also learn how those concepts can be used in everyday life to optimize athletic performance and wellness. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate the vital
A brief, to-the-point presentation of the most important points in clinical physiology. Enables the reader to see cardio-pulmonary-renal physiology as well as immunologyand other areas as a clear conceptual whole.
Equine exercise physiology is an area that has been subject to major scientific advances over the last 30 years, largely due to the increased availability of high-speed treadmills and techniques for recording physiological function during exercise. Despite the scientific advances, many riders and trainers are still using little more than experience and intuition to train their horses. The aim of this book is to sort the fact from the fiction for the benefit of those involved in training, managing or working
This useful new book incorporates colouring exercises, along with a number of other testing activities including labelling, Multiple-Choice questions and word searches. It has been written to be used in combination with Myles Textbook for Midwives, but can also be used for general Midwifery study. The workbook is suitable for different learning styles, offering a wide variety of exercise types so that students can check on and consolidate their learning. A varied and interesting range of activities to facilitate learning:
This classic animal physiology text focuses on comparative examples that illustrate the general principles of physiology at all levels of organisation—from molecular mechanisms to regulated physiological systems to whole organisms in their environment. This textbook is an authoritative and complete guide to the field of animal physiology which uses a threefold approach to teaching. The Comparative Approach emphasises basic mechanisms but allows patterns of physiological function in different species to demonstrate how evolution creates diversity. This approach encourages students
Bridging the gap between exercise physiology principles and clinical practice, this text provides comprehensive coverage of both traditional basic science and clinical exercise physiology principles. The book presents clinical applications and examples that connect theory to practice. More than 500 full-color illustrations and numerous graphs and tables complement the text. Reader-friendly features including Perspective Boxes, Research Highlights, Biography Boxes, and Case Studies engage readers and reinforce key concepts. A bonus three-dimensional interactive anatomy CD-ROM from Primal Pictures and a Student Resource
Audience: first and second year medical students; nursing practitioner students; physician assistant students; residents in internal medicine, anesthesiology, pediatrics, pulmonary medicine; and respiratory therapists Emphasizes comprehension of fundamental concepts over memorization All major concepts illustrated with figures Clinical study questions and answers and problem-based examples in each chapter New to this edition: correlations to clinical medicine at the end of each chapter, updated text throughout, additional tables added to highlight key concepts, and updated references
"This textbook aligns the basic science of anatomy and physiology with the applied art and science of communication disorders. The content is approached from a clinical perspective so that students understand the application of the content. Applied Anatomy and Physiology for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is unique for its presentation of elementary and introductory anatomy and physiology in a framework of clinical practice"--Provided by publisher.
