Overview

This important book reviews the general elements of exercise physiology common to all vertebrates. Written by the leading authorities in the study of exercise performance, chapters discuss topics such as matching ATP synthesis to ATP demand during exercise; the mechanical design of the muscular system; circulatory function during exercise; and respiratory gas exchange during exercise. A companion volume (Volume, 38, Part B) details the specialization's and adaptations that delineate specific representative groups of vertebrates. Together, these two volumes synthesize an extensive literature on the myriad metabolic; morphological and mechanical factors that typify the diversity of vertebrate, exercise physiology.
