About this book

Comprehensive, contemporary, and engaging, Animal Physiology provides evolutionary and ecological context to help students make connections across all levels of physiological scale. One of the major challenges instructors and students face in Animal Physiology is making connections across levels of biological scale. Animal Physiology addresses this challenge by providing ecological and evolutionary context to the study of physiology at all levels of organization: genome, molecular biology, biochemistry, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems. Hill's inclusion of ecology and evolution helps readers gain a holistic perspective on animal function and sets Animal Physiology apart from texts that focus more narrowly on physiology. Hill's Animal Physiology is trusted by instructors and students because of its authoritative, current, engaging, and lavishly illustrated presentation.

Richard W. Hill is a Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at Michigan State University and a frequent Guest Investigator at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. He received his PhD in Zoology from the University of Michigan. Apart from the multiple editions of Animal Physiology, Dr Hill is a coauthor of Principles of Life, Second Edition, and has authored two other books on animal physiology, as well as numerous articles for scientific journals, encyclopedias, and edited volumes. Among the awards he has received are the Outstanding Faculty Award (Michigan State University Senior Class Council) and election as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He was a U.S. Senior Fulbright Scholar from 2000-2001. His research interests include: temperature regulation and energetics in birds and mammals, especially neonates; and environmental physiology of marine tertiary sulfonium and quaternary ammonium compounds.

Margaret Anderson is Professor Emerita of Biological Sciences at Smith College. After completing her PhD at Stanford University, she undertook postdoctoral studies at the Universidad Catolica de Chile, Harvard University, and the University of Puerto Rico. At Smith, Dr Anderson served as an Academic Dean, Director of the Program in Neuroscience, and premedical advisor. She is one of six founding members of the Consortium of Medical Schools and Women's Colleges, and she contributes to several efforts that encourage women and minorities in the sciences. Her research interests include the functional properties of excitable cells.
