Description

This section represents a comprehensive, international effort. The first chapters present a general view of environmental adaptation, including historical and theoretical aspects. The roles of organ systems in adaptation are then covered in 12 detailed chapters. Principal environments are described, followed in each case by discussion of the major aspects of the adaptive process as seen in representative groups of animals. The contributors approach the subject from such varied fields as physiology, zoology, entomology, anatomy, pharmacology, toxicology, and climatology--demonstrating that physiological adaptation encompasses much of physiology and relates to general biological principles.show more
