ISBN-13: 9780521765558

Analysing the physiological diversifications of marine mammals and seabirds, this publication presents a finished evaluation of what permits those species to beat the demanding situations of diving to intensity on a unmarried breath of air. via comparative stories of texts on diving body structure and behavior from the final seventy-five years, Ponganis combines this study into one succinct quantity. Investigating the diving functionality of marine mammals and seabirds, this booklet illustrates how physiological tactics to severe hypoxia and strain are appropriate to the development of our knowing of easy mobile methods and human pathologies. This ebook underscores the biomedical and ecological relevance of the anatomical, physiological and molecular/biophysical variations of those animals to allow additional study during this quarter. an enormous source for college kids and researchers, this article not just presents a necessary assessment of modern learn within the box, yet will stimulate extra learn into the behaviour and body structure of diving.
