Ecophysiology of amphibians inhabiting xeric environments

Author: M R Warburg
Publisher: Berlin ; New York : Springer, ©1997.
Series: Adaptations of desert organisms.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book describes structural and functional adaptations of key organs such as skin, kidneys, bladder, lungs and ovaries. Behavioural responses to high temperatures mainly involve thermoregulation and the selection of optimal temperatures and humidity. Special emphasis is placed on physiological adaptations: water, electrolyte, nitrogen, and thermal balance and their endocrine control are treated in detail.  Read more...
