The maintenance of a stable acid-base status within biological tissue is a fundamental homeostatic process in all organisms, necessary to preserve the metabolic function of proteins and other macromolecules. The study of acid-base regulation has advanced enormously over recent decades due to the development of increasingly accurate and sensitive techniques for measuring acid-base variables. This volume brings together contributions from leading comparative physiologists working on factors affecting the acid-base status of the internal fluids of animals and plants. The result is a broad-ranging, authoritative and accessible review of this area, together with a critical look at techniques and tools.
Re-issued as Paperback in 2007 under the title Regulation of Tissue pH in Plants and Animals.
The strength of this book is its wide scope...This book will be of interest to anyone studying biological acid regulation. The Quarterly Review of Biology
