The book takes an entirely fresh approach to each topic.
Its full-color illustrations include many novel, visually effective features to help students learn.
Each of the 28 chapters starts with a brief animal example to engage student interest and demonstrate the value of the material that will be learned.
The book includes five entire chapters that apply students' newfound physiological knowledge to curiosity-provoking and important topics, including diving by marine mammals, the mechanisms of navigation, and use/disuse effects in muscle.
The book is committed to a comparative approach throughout.
While mammalian physiology is consistently treated in depth, emphasis is also given to the other vertebrate groups, arthropods, molluscs, and-as appropriate-additional invertebrates.
