Mammalian Social Learning
Social learning commonly refers to the social transfer of information and skill among individuals. It encompasses a wide range of behaviours that include where and how to obtain food, how to interact with members of one's own social group, and to identify and respond appropriately to predators. The ..

Parasite Neuromusculature and its Utility as a Drug Target
Nerve and muscle systems in helminth parasites interact in a highly co-ordinated manner to control movements associated with alimentation, reproduction, locomotion and attachment. All metazoan parasites rely on some or all of these activities for their survival. For a long time it has been known tha..

Parasite Adaptation to Environmental Constraints
Parasites experience two environments; one reflecting external conditions, the other created by the living host. The constraints imposed by these environments provide an avenue into the rich diversity of parasitology. Papers review familiar and unfamiliar extreme physical conditions from low tempera..

The Body at Work
This volume was originally published in 1982. Ergonomics is the study of people, primarily in relation to their work, but also with reference to transport, sport and leisure activities. The general purposes of this book were to apply to ergonomics the established principles of anatomy, physiology an..

Reproduction in Mammals
In this, our second edition of Reproduction in Mammals, we are responding to numerous requests for a more up-to-date and rather more detailed treatment of the subject. The first edition was accorded an excellent reception, but Books 1 to 5 were written some 14 years ago and inevitably there have bee..

An Introduction to the Invertebrates
So much has to be crammed into today's biology courses that basic information on animal groups and their evolutionary origins is often left out. This is particularly true for the invertebrates. The second edition of Janet Moore's An Introduction to the Invertebrates fills this gap by providing a sho..

The Effects of Low Temperature on Biological Systems
First published in 1987, The Effects of Low Temperatures on Biological Systems takes a broad view of the interactions of low temperatures with biological conditions. The topics covered range from molecular effects to whole organism behaviour and include practical applications in medicine, agricultur..

Bones was originally published in 1936 and is still essential reading for anyone entering bone research. A classic in the field of skeletal development, biology, anatomy and anthropology, the book sets out in clear and lucid prose the experimental basis for our current notions on how intrinsic and e..

Flukes and Snails Revisited
Considerable progress has been made in recent years in unravelling the complexities of the snail-parasite relationship. The chapters in this work cover many different aspects, including ecology, parasite transmission, parasite interactions, evolutionary biology, molecular systematics, and snail defe..

Ecology of the Acanthocephala
Acanthocephalans, or spiny-headed worms, are endoparasites found in almost all marine, freshwater and terrestrial systems. They infect a huge range of definitive and intermediate hosts, during their life cycles, including both vertebrates and arthropods. This volume examines the distribution and abu..

Scaling: Why is Animal Size so Important?
This book is about the importance of animal size. We tend to think of animal function in chemical terms and talk of water, salts, proteins, enzymes, oxygen, energy, and so on. We should not forget, however, that physical laws are equally important, for they determine rates of diffusion and heat tran..
