Description

Each group of vertebrates is exemplified by widely different physiological adaptations to the needs of excercise. This book presents taxonomically focused discussions of these adaptations of particular lineages. Separate chapters, written by the leading authorities in the study of exercise performance, discuss the physiology of exercies in fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. A companion volume discusses the patterns of exercise physiology common to all vertebrates. Together, they synthesize an extensive literature on the myriad metabolic, morphological and mechanical factors that typify the diversity of vertebrate exercise physiology.
