About the book

Principles of Animal Physiology, by Chris Moyes and Trish Schulte, is designed to provide second- and third-year, undergraduate university students enrolled in animal physiology courses with an approach that balances its presentation of comparative physiology with mechanistic topics.

The book delivers the fundamentals of animal physiology, while providing an integrative learning experience, drawing on ideas from chemistry, physics, mathematics, molecular biology and cell biology for its conceptual underpinnings.
