Animal Osmoregulation (Oxford Animal Biology Series) by Tim Bradley

By Tim Bradley

Water is key to existence and all metabolic reactions are stimulated by means of the aqueous surroundings within which they happen. Osmoregulation and water stability are for this reason totally crucial subject matters in animal body structure. Animal Osmoregulation collates a extensively dispersed literature to provide a accomplished and authoritative synthesis of the sector, supplying specific examples of osmoregulatory procedures on the organismal, organ and mobile point. It accommodates transparent history info on ion law and delivery (specifically within the mild of modern molecular reviews) and illustrates the actual rules to which each and 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, making a choice on universal topics that go beyond taxonomy.

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the large subject matters of migration and differentiation in general improvement. The booklet additionally considers what is going improper while improvement is misdirected by way of mutations, or via publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers equivalent to medicines, alcohol, or extra diet A, and contains discussions of tumours and syndromes and start defects regarding neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the examine of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing in particular with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going directly to the middle of the developmental foundation of version, the uncooked fabric on which traditional choice (and random go with the flow) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older offers the organic rules that experience ended in a brand new realizing of the explanations of getting older and describes how those simple ideas aid one to appreciate the human adventure of organic getting older, toughness, and age-related sickness. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that have an effect on durability in numerous organisms; outlines the conventional age-related alterations and the practical decline that happens in physiological structures over the lifespan; and considers the results of modulating the speed of getting older and sturdiness.
