The field of plant physiology includes the study of all chemical and physical processes of plants, from the molecular-level interactions of photosynthesis and the diffusion of water, minerals, and nutrients within the plant, to the larger-scale processes of plant growth, dormancy and reproduction. This new book covers a broad array of topics within the field. Plant Physiology focuses on the study of the internal activities of plants, including research into the molecular interactions of photosynthesis and the internal diffusion of water, minerals, and nutrients. Also included are investigations into the processes of plant development, seasonality, dormancy, and reproductive control. The chapters focus on various aspects of plant physiology, including phytochemistry; interactions within a plant between cells, issues, and organs; ways in which plants regulate their internal functions; and how plants respond to conditions and variations within the environment. Given the environmental crises brought about by pollution and climate change, this is a particularly vital area of study, since stress from water loss, changes in air chemistry, or crowding by other plants can lead to changes in the way a plant function. Readers of this book will gain the information they need to stay current with the latest research being done in this essential field of study.

Human Physiology in Extreme Environments, Second Edition, offers evidence on how human biology and physiology is affected by extreme environments, also highlighting technological innovations that allow us to adapt and regulate environments. Covering a broad range of extreme environments, including high altitude, underwater, tropical climates, desert climates, arctic climates and space travel, the book also includes case studies that can be used to illustrate practical application. Graduate students, medical students and researchers will find this to be an interesting, informative and useful resource for human physiology, environmental physiology and medical studies. Includes coverage of current global challenges and their consequences on human physiology and performance Presents human physiological challenges in extreme environments Provides an excellent source of information on paleontological and anthropological aspects Offers practical medical and scientific uses of current concepts

Periods of environmental hypoxia (Low Oxygen Availability) are extremely common in aquatic systems due to both natural causes such as diurnal oscillations in algal respiration, seasonal flooding, stratification, under ice cover in lakes, and isolation of densely vegetated water bodies, as well as more recent anthropogenic causes (e.g. eutrophication). In view of this, it is perhaps not surprising that among all vertebrates, fish boast the largest number of hypoxia tolerant species; hypoxia has clearly played an important role in shaping the evolution of many unique adaptive strategies. These unique adaptive strategies either allow fish to maintain function at low oxygen levels, thus extending hypoxia tolerance limits, or permit them to defend against the metabolic consequences of oxygen levels that fall below a threshold where metabolic functions cannot be maintained. The aim of this volume is two-fold. First, this book will review and synthesize the adaptive behavioural, morphological, physiological, biochemical, and molecular strategies used by fish to survive hypoxia exposure and place them within an environmental and ecological context. Second, through the development of a synthesis chapter this book will serve as the cornerstone for directing future research into the effects of hypoxia exposures on fish physiology and biochemistry. The only single volume available to provide an in-depth discussion of the adaptations and responses of fish to environmental hypoxia Reviews and synthesizes the adaptive behavioural, morphological, physiological, biochemical, and molecular strategies used by fish to survive hypoxia exposure Includes discussion of the evolutionary and ecological consequences of hypoxia exposure in fish

This updated and revised fourth edition of the respected Textbook of Work Physiology combines classical issues in exercise and work physiology with the latest scientific findings. The result is an outstanding professional reference that will be indispensable to advanced students, physiologists, clinicians, physical educators--any professional pursuing study of the body as a working machine. Written by world-renowned exercise physiologists and sports medicine specialists, the new edition retains the important historical background and exercise physiology research conducted by the authors over the past 40 years. In addition, it brings you up-to-date on the growth in the field since the previous edition, presenting today's most current scientific research findings. Beyond the scientific details, the book also addresses the application of this information to the fields of exercise physiology and work physiology, making the resource more useful than ever. Textbook of Work Physiology, Fourth Edition includes these updated features: -More than 1,600 references -"Classical studies" and "additional reading" side boxes for those who wish to study a topic more closely -In-depth studies taken from the working world, recreational activities, and elite sport -More than 380 illustrations, tables, and photos -Comprehensive appendix, including glossary, list of symbols, conversion tables, and definitions of terms and units

Excerpt from Hand-Book of Physiology I save once more subjected this book to a thorough revision, and endeavoured to incorporate in it the results of all important recent work in the widening physiological field. In so doing, I have tried to keep in mind that the book is a student's text-book, and that it is therefore neces sary not to overwhelm its readers with a mass of unnecessary detail. The introduction of new matter entails the excision of what is antiquated or unnecessary, and so I have been able to keep the size of the work pretty much as it was. The present edition exceeds its predecessor by only fiiwen pages, and this increase is largely due to the fact that about twenty new illustrations have been added. It is immssible to enumerate all the changes now introduced, for hardly a page has escaped some alteration. The principal additions are, however, as follows: New sections have been intro duced on the significance of Nissl's granules, on Waller's work on the electrical currents of the eyeball, on Cannon's researches in connection with stomach movements, and on Waymouth Reid's investigation of the processes of absorp tion. The sections relating to the electrical phenomena of muscle, to the proteids, to the ductless glands, to the muscles of the larynx, to the cranial nerves, and to.
