About this book

Originally published in 1934 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, Features in the Architecture of Physiological Function examines the key principles underlying animal physiology and the study of physiology. Barcroft shows how every natural internal process is affected and supported by other processes and systems, and concludes every chapter with a brief bibliography on the topics covered. Features in the Architecture of Physiological Function will be of value to anyone with an interest in the study of physiology and the functions performed by the organs.
