About this book

Authoritative synthesis of physiological ecology supported by more than 3,100 references.
From the Foreword:`This book encompasses the breadth of contemporary physiological ecology, the awesome diversity of vertebrates, and the impressive variety of mechanisms that enable them to live everywhere from Antarctica to the Sahara Desert, from tropical rain forests to the abyssal depths of the oceans....Brian K. McNab uses energetics as a unifying theme to explain how processes at the physical, chemical, cellular, and organismal level have been exploited by natural selection to solve problems of survival and reproduction in diverse, often stressful environments.'
