Advances in Veterinary Science and Comparative Medicine: Comparative Vertebrate Exercise Physiology v.38
This important book reviews the general elements of exercise physiology common to all vertebrates. Written by the leading authorties in the study of exercises performance, chapters discuss topics such as matching ATP synthesis to ATP demand during exercise, the mechanical design of the muscular system, cirulatory function during exercise, and respiratory gas exchange during exercise. A companion volume details the specializiations and adaptations that delineate specific representative groups of vertebrates. Together, the two volumes synthesize an extensive literature on the myriad metabolic, morphological, and mechanical factors that typify the diversity of vertebrate exercise physiology.
