This book is an excellent introductory course in physiology for the student in agricultural science, veterinary technology, and pre-veterinary medicine. It provides in-depth coverage of eight species, including horse, dog, cat, cow, sheep, goat, pig, and chicken. The latest edition is extensively revised, and features 133 newly created original drawings that capture the essence of physiologic concepts, and allow the reader to compare. Each chapter is followed by self-assessment and review questions, and at the back of the book readers will find answers to these questions as well as expanded explanations, providing a handy reference and study guide. The second edition provides augmented coverage of avian physiology, and a new chapter on bone has been added, with comprehensive presentation of the skeleton for each of the species.
