Deals with the regulatory peptides in the autonomic neurons and endocrine cells of the gut and the circulatory system, describing the presence and function of the various peptides, or the interaction between the substances in the different systems. Concentrates on those peptides on which comparative research has been done, including both mammalian and non-mammalian species, stressing the evolutionary perspectives. Some of the 14 chapters describe the peptide groups one by one, and compare their distribution and function in different animal groups. A separate chapter examines peptides of invertebrate origin. Other chapters discuss the integrated functions of peptides within the two organ systems. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
