Thermal and Energetic Studies of Cellular Biological Systems reviews literature on thermal and energetic changes which occur in living organisms. It was commissioned at the suggestion of Dr. Philip Edge of John Wright & Sons and was a natural successor to the 1980 book Biological Microcalorimetry. This volume is restricted to a discussion of energy changes in cellular systems. This book is organized into nine chapters. Each author presents a concise, up-to-date account of his field of expertise. Their topics include the usefulness of calorimetric methods in ecological studies, growth and metabolism in bacteria and yeasts, metabolism and heat dissipation in whole tissues or organs, and animal cells and energy requirements in biological systems. This book will be of interest to people seeking a non-destructive technique for studying cellular system and it can serve as a guide and a reference book to those already active in the field.
