This comprehensive and thoroughly updated text surveys comparative vertebrate endocrinology.

This third edition focuses more attention on mammalian systems, neuroendocrinology, and molecular endocrinology. The text has been extensively reviewed by faculty who teach endocrinology and should establish a new teaching standard for comparative vertebrate endocrinology. It is thoroughly revised and updated. It provides comprehensive coverage of comparative endocrinology. It is illustrated with numerous drawings, graphs, and photomicrographs.

About the Author:

Dr. Norris has done research in environmental endocrinology and neuroendocrinology for more than 35 years, investigating the role of natural (e.g., photoperiod, temperature) and anthropogenic environmental factors (metals, pesticides, industrial pollutants) on thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive endocrinology in regards to development, sexual maturation, seasonal reproduction, and aging. Most of his research has involved salmonid fishes and urodele amphibians.
