Animal Physiology is composed of six parts. Part I looks at the fundamentals of physiology including animal, environment, molecules, cells, genomics, proteomics, physiological development, and transport of solids and water. Part II covers food, energy, and temperature. It looks at topics such as nutrition, feeding, digestion, energy metabolism, aerobic and anaerobic forms of metabolism, thermal relations, and food. The next part looks at integrating systems: neurons, synapses, sensory processes, nervous system organization, biological clocks, endocrine and neuroendocrine physiology, reproduction, and integrating systems in action. The next part covers movement and muscle. Part V is about oxygen, carbon dioxide, and internal transport. The final part of the book looks into water, salts, and excretion.
