9780123948151: Vertebrate Endocrinology

Vertebrate Endocrinology represents more than just a treatment of the endocrine system-it integrates hormones with other chemical bioregulatory agents not classically included with the endocrine system. It provides a complete overview of the endocrine system of vertebrates by first emphasizing the mammalian system as the basis of most terminology and understanding of endocrine mechanisms and then applies that to non-mammals. The serious reader will gain both an understanding of the intricate relationships among all of the body systems and their regulation by hormones and other bioregulators, but also a sense of their development through evolutionary time as well as the roles of hormones at different stages of an animal's life cycle. Vertebrate Endocrinology is designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the biological, animal, and veterinary sciences; as well as endocrine researchers in comparative, veterinary, and mammalian endocrinology. The Fifth Edition will be reorganized and completely updated including the addition of new clinical correlation vignettes, a new chapter on Endocrine Disrupters, and new full-color figures and tables. * Includes new full color format includes over 450 full color, completely redrawn images* Features a companion web site hosting all images from the book as PPT slides and .jpeg files* Presents completedly updated and revitalized content with new chapters, such as Endocrine Disrupters and Behavioral Endocrinology* Offers new clinical correlation vignettes throughout

Review:

".what makes this book particularly useful for many aspects of the study of life science lies in its synthesis, its making of links between different aspects of biology."--The Biologist,Vol 61, No 6 "This book will be useful for graduate students interested in comparative endocrinology.As an instructor of veterinary endocrinology, I found this book to be a good source for both illustrations and basic information, and a complement for clinical and animal management discussions in endocrinology."--Journal of American Veterinary Medicine Association, December 15, 2013 ".constitutes a major and unique contribution to this area.contains a wealth of factual information.[and] admirably succeeds in stimulating the scientific curiosity of readers and in conveying a sense of fascination for the intricate mechanisms and importance of endocrinology."--General and Comparative Endocrinology ".a good text for comparative endocrinology classes or classes composed of students from a wide variety of disciplines.this book is well written and organized. Concepts are explained in a manner that should be easily understandable to beginning endocrinology students."--Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism

About the Author:

Dr. David O. Norris has done research in environmental endocrinology and neuroendocrinology for more than 50 years, investigating the role of natural and anthropogenic environmental factors on thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive endocrinology in regards to development, sexual maturation, seasonal reproduction, and aging. Most of his research has involved fishes and amphibians. Dr. Norris was honored with the Robert L. Stearns Award for outstanding teaching, research and service at the University of Colorado. He is now Professor Emeritus in the Department of Integrative Physiology at Boulder Colorado. Dr. James A. Carr is a Professor of Biology in the Department of Biological Sciences at Texas Tech University. His research has focused on various aspects of environmental endocrinology and neuroendocrinology for 25 years including the effects of opioid peptides on brainstem, cardiovascular areas and pituitary hormone secretion, the impact of environmental pollutants on the thyroid and reproductive axes in fishes and amphibians, and the impact of stress hormones on subcortical visual pathways involved in feeding.
