This series of textbooks, is part of the BSc. Zoology Series, which consists of five volumes. Biochemistry, Physiology and Endocrinology, is the third volume. This book is aimed for students who are completing their bachelor's education in the life sciences. The book's test-friendly format, is designed to provide students with exam preparation. Biochemistry, examines the chemical processes that occur within living organisms. This area of study focuses on topics such as biochemical signalling, metabolism and chemical energy, and to discover the underlying processes which give rise to the complexities of life. Physiology is a branch in medicine which looks at how organs, cells, organisms, and chemical processes, function within a living being. Endocrinology is a special branch within medicine which looks at the function of the endocrine gland, and how the cells and tissues, function with respect to hormones and biochemistry of the body. In Biochemistry, Physiology and Endocrinology, students can expect to find a thorough coverage of topics such as Vitamins, Enzymes, Lipids and their metabolism, Reproductive System, Locomotion and Muscle Contraction, Thermo Regulation, Endocrinology, Carbohydrates, and Biochemistry, to name a few. The text also contains exercises, at the end of each chapter, to test students' comprehension of the material. There is also a surplus of artwork, to provide students with a visual of the topics being covered. About B. N. Pandey Dr. B. N.
