    Endocrinology is the study of how various chemical messengers of organisms work to alter the functions and structures of these same organisms. This text focuses on comparative vertebrate endocrinology and the many different ways that vertebrates use hormones, vitamins and other co-factors to regulate the processes of metabolism and growth. Vertebrate Endocrinology is designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the biological sciences, animal sciences, and veterinary sciences as well as endocrine researchers in comparative, veterinary, and mammalian endocrinology. New full-color format includes more than full-color, completely redrawn images.3/5(12).

    During the 21st century, environmental comparative endocrinologists must play an important role in the identification and assessment of endocrine disruption on vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Many illustrations, tables, and references are included. An important contribution to the fields of comparative endocrinology and reproduction, this book will be a valuable text for advanced undergraduate and gradate students and an irreplaceable reference for zoologists in general and for specialists in reproductive physiology.

    P. J. Bentley is the author of Comparative Vertebrate Endocrinology ( avg rating, 0 ratings, 0 reviews, published ), Endocrine Pharmacology ( a.   One of the only books to discuss all vertebrates, the fourth edition of Vertebrate Endocrinology has been completely reorganized and updated to explore the intricate mechanisms that control human physiology and behavior as well as that of other vertebrate animals. Perfect for students in endocrinology, zoology, biology and physiology, it allows readers to gain both an understanding of the 5/5(1).

Endocrinology, as a discipline, was a late arrival in the corpus of established subjects. Its growth in recent years has been prodigious, extending from mor­ phology to molecular levels. Most of the major endocrine glands were noted by the early anatomists, although the adrenal glands were not.Vertebrate Endocrinology is designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the biological sciences, animal sciences, and veterinary sciences as well as endocrine researchers in comparative, veterinary, and mammalian endocrinology.

Contents. 1. An Overview of Chemical Bioregulation in Vertebrates 2. Methods to Study Bioregulation 3.The Endocrinology of Growth, Development, and Metabolism in Vertebrates provides an overview of vertebrate endocrinology.

This book aims to strengthen the bridge between medical and comparative endocrinologists by addressing the benefits that they can derive from this association.
