About this book

Originally published in 1939 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, Osmotic Regulation in Aquatic Animals details how animals living in water regulate their internal water content. Krough exhaustively surveys animals from protozoa to crustaceans and aquatic birds, as well as examining the osmotic conditions in sensitive eggs and embryos. Osmotic Regulation in Aquatic Animals will be of value to anyone with an interest in osmosis and the life of aquatic animals.
