Overview

The long-awaited third edition of this popular textbook, which has been unavailable for several years, is completely revised and updated. It retains the successful format of previous editions, dealing with the nature, actions and roles of hormones among vertebrate animals. Special emphasis is placed on the evolution and origins of hormones and their receptors; the role of hormones in the physiological coordination of vertebrates; and each endocrine process in the context of the organism's physiology, ecology, and evolution. Comparative Vertebrate Endocrinology discusses the intimate physiology of the endocrine system and the pivotal role of hormones in coordinating basic body processes such as nutrition, reproduction, calcium metabolism, and osmoregulation, as well as their contributions to animal coloration, molting, and development. The species included range from lower chordates to mammals, including marsupials.

Incl. evolution of hormones & recombinant DNA technology; role in processes of nutrition, reproduction etc

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews from the hardcover edition...

"More than 20 years after the first edition, this book retains the flavor of the original: didactic and informative...This exciting book illustrates why unusual mammals and nonmammalian species should be investigated: they provide avenues whereby fundamental processes are understood and often more clearly exemplified...The volume, laudabley, retains the original format...Throughout, the text is aptly referenced...This book is an excellent account of the endocrine system of vertebrates. Although accessible to undergraduate and postgraduate audiences, it gives the academic a most valuable source of information for teaching and a platform from which to launch stimulating research and teaching programs. The book is well produced, indexed, and illustrated, and is not excessively expensive by present standards."-Ian W. Henderson, The Quarterly Review of Biology
