Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Presents a fresh approach to the study of energy expenditure by introducing various concepts in open system thermodynamics and cellular to whole-body energy exchange. This text traces biological energy exchange, from the molecules in the food we eat to the energy demands of rest, physical exertion and its recovery.
