Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a little gem; it treats in an authoritative and charming manner a number of physiological and morphological adaptations which animals evolved in coping with certain environmental exigencies...I recommend [this book] to fellow biologists of all ages as one of the better buys of its kind."

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best, if not the best, introduction to the understanding of environmental physiology. Schmidt-Nielsen takes the stance that the adaptation of animals to their environment profoundly decides the nature of their physiology and behavior. Steve Popkes, Boston, MA

There are many people in the world who don't realize that Animal Physiology is the most intensely interesting thing that anybody could ever study. This book will make sure that you are not one of those people.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Coyote on May 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
One of the best introductions to the thoughtful analysis of physiological adaptations of animals. Extremely well-written for a general audience as well as rigorously grounded in fundamental chemistry and physics with surprising tales for those new to this discipline. It is an extremely small paperback; buy it used for one-tenth the price.
