This book has been written according to the syliabi of Indian universities and it covers major areas of cellular, general and comparative physiology. The text is organised on the basis of sixteen major areas of physiology.Cell as a Physiological unit, gives a brief survey of electron microscopic structure of animal cell and cell organelles, physico-chemical properties of protoplasm and plasmamembrane with its permeability characteristics. Nutrition and Digestion, deals with various types of feeding mechanism, and process of enzymatic hydrolysis that underline digestion. Energy and Metabolism, mailny emphasizes laws of thermodynamics, enzyme kinetics and various metabolic pathways that are involved in the turnover of energy in the biological systems. A special section on protein synthesis has also been added to give the 20th century concept about this field of research.Chapters on Respiration, Circulation and Excreation are dealt mailny from the general physiological point of view, while Osmo-regulation and Thermoregulation give main emphasis on comparative physiology.Effectors describe various mechanisms involved in the locomotion and the Receptors deal with reception of the information from the environment. Chapters on Nervous and Endocrine Systems, survey the knowledge mailny with relation to Reproduction presents information on physiological and endocrinological principles presents the 20th century concept of this dynamic system.
