Water is fundamental to life and all metabolic reactions are influenced by the aqueous environment in which they occur. Osmoregulation and water balance are therefore absolutely essential topics in animal physiology.
Animal Osmoregulation collates a widely dispersed literature to produce a comprehensive and authoritative synthesis of the field, providing detailed examples of osmoregulatory processes at the organismal, organ and cellular level. It incorporates clear background information on ion regulation and transport (specifically in the light of recent molecular studies) and illustrates the physical principles to which each organism must adhere, as well as the phylogenetic constraints within which it must operate.
As with other titles in the Oxford Animal Biology Series, the topic is addressed using examples from throughout the animal kingdom, identifying common themes that transcend taxonomy.

Timothy J. Bradley is a Comparative Physiologist by training and a Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine. His areas of research interest are mechanisms of salt and water balance in animals, animal energetics, and the evolution of physiological function. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.Review:
"It was about time somebody wrote this book. It is neat, tight, and accessible to students and old hands alike. Ecologists and toxicologists should find this book useful when grappling with salt mixtures as toxicants from industrial waste, road salt, irrigation return water, mineral extraction, and desertification. I recommend this book as a refresher for toxicologists or as a primer for ecologists less familiar with cellular physiology. Animal Osmoregulation is also aptly suited for its probable intended audience of upperlevel students of comparative physiology or physiological ecology."--Susan M. Cormier Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management
