Exogenous and Endogenous Influences on Metabolic and Neural Control, Volume 1: Invited Lectures covers the proceedings of the Third Congress of the European Society for Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry. The book presents 35 papers that cover various aspects in the control of physiological activities in animals. The text first details the origin of physiology and comparative physiology. Next, the book covers papers that deal with different physiological systems, which include feeding, respiration, reproduction, osmoregulation, and perception. The text will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of biology, biochemistry, medicine.
