This authoritative book gathers together a broad range of ideas and topics that define the field. It provides clear, concise, comprehensive coverage of all aspects of cellular physiology from fundamental concepts to more advanced topics.
The Second Edition contains over 50% new material. Most chapters have been thoroughly reworked, and new chapters on important developments such as sensory transduction, the physiology of protozoa and bacteria, the regulation of cell division, and programmed cell death have been included. Leading experts in their fields, the contributors have revised and updated their own individual chapters. The Editor has fashioned the chapters into a cohesive, unified text. These new additions and chapters should make the Second Edition of the Cell Physiology Source Book the most complete and useful source book available.
