This is a major revision and redesign of a classic work in the field of veterinary medicine first published by Cornell University Press in 1933. For the Twelfth Edition of Dukes' Physiology of Domestic Animals, William O. Reece has overseen the writing of an essentially new book that retains what was best about its predecessors. Long a standard text for veterinary practitioners and other professionals who seek to refresh their knowledge of particular subjects, Dukes' Physiology of Domestic Animals will now appeal to a new generation of students of veterinary medicine and animal science and to biomedical researchers. Section editors known for their scientific expertise and teaching skill oversaw the book's six main sections: The Body Fluids and Blood; Renal and Respiratory Function and Acid-Base Balance; The Cardiovascular System; Digestion, Absorption, and Metabolism; Endocrinology, Reproduction, and Lactation; and Nervous System, Special Senses, Muscle, and Temperature Regulation. This edition includes a complete listing of each chapter's contents immediately after the chapter head, study questions that highlight the major concepts of each major subsection, self-evaluation exercises at the end of the chapters, suggestions for further reading, and a comprehensive index.
