David Norris and James Carr
This book is up to date, scholarly and serious in tone, yet well illustrated and attractive to read. Accessible to undergraduate biologists, it also provides, for those embarking on postgraduate research into comparative physiology, a sound scientific framework and an insight into the directions in which this rapidly developing subject is currently evolving.
However, what makes this book particularly useful for many aspects of the study of life science lies in its synthesis, its making of links between different aspects of biology. It places many aspects of animal (including human) biology into a broader and deeper perspective.
