The past decade has seen a disproportionate increase in the number of studies published on "stress". This results partly from an increase in the number of biological disciplines studying stress, but also from the recognition that the concept of stress can be applied to all levels of organization - from ecosystems to the molecular level - and that the relevant physiological mechanisms evolved at least 400 million years ago.
Stress Physiology in Animals provides an overview of the impact of stress on animal physiology, organized by functional activity. Comparative aspects of the subject are emphasized throughout. The authors concentrate on the recent literature, and the volume covers a range of organization, from molecule to community. An extensive list of references is provided. This book is ideal for academic and industrial researchers in animal physiology, animal endocrinology, and animal behavior.
