Description

Sturkie’s Avian Physiology, Seventh Edition is the classic, comprehensive, single volume on the physiology of domestic and wild birds. This latest edition is thoroughly revised and updated with several new chapters with entirely new content on such topics as vision, sensory taste, pain reception, evolution and domestication. Chapters throughout have been greatly expanded due to the many recent advances in the field. This book is written by international experts in different aspects of avian physiology. For easy reading and searches, the book is structured under a series of themes, beginning with genomic studies, sensory biology and nervous systems, and major organs.

This book is an important resource for ornithologists, poultry scientists, and other researchers in avian studies. It is also useful for students in avian or poultry physiology, as well as avian veterinarians.

Key Features

  • Stands out as the only single volume devoted to bird physiology
  • Features updates, revisions or additions to each chapter
  • Written and edited by international leaders in avian studies
