"Animal Physiology is the essential core text for all those studying physiology or zoology. The advances that have taken place in the field of physiology during the last four to five decades are spectacular. It is therefore necessary that the students either at undergraduate or postgraduate level are fully exposed to these frontiers in Animal Physiology and the present publication is an attempt in this direction. This book provides extensive account of recent developments in the field. Attempts have been made to design a textbook by incorporating important topics that are useful and effective for students. The Physiology of Digestive System, Excretory System, Nervous System, Respiratory System and Reproduce System etc. are all being presented with meticulous care and details. It is hoped that his book will not only meet the requirements of students but will also be useful as a guide to the academic professionals." (jacket)
