Basic Physiology is an introduction to vertebrate physiology, stressing human physiology at the organ level, and includ- ing requisite anatomy integrated with function. One chapter deals solely with topographic anatomy in atlas form and microscopic anatomy of the principal tissues of the body. Additional chapters cover cellular and general physiology; nervous system, muscle; blood and tissue fluids, heart and circulation; respiration, digestion and absorption; intermedi- ary metabolism; energy metabolism; temperature regulation; nutrition; kidney; endocrinology, including hypophysis, re- production; thyroids, parathyroids, adrenals and pancreas. All concepts are emphasized and well illustrated, and con- troversial material is omitted. It is written at a level suited to undergraduate students who have had introductory courses in biology, chemistry, and mathematics, and to more ad- vanced students who wish to review the basic concepts of physiology. This volume should be especially useful as a text for de- partments of biology, zoology, nursing, health, and agricul- tural sciences that offer courses in vertebrate and human physiology. Basic Physiology is written by seven subject matter special- ists who have considerable experience in teaching their specialty to undergraduates studying physiology and biology.
