"Building on previous versions, the new editions of this book proposes to be an accompaniment to first-year students of veterinary-related subjects, but will also?prove to be a useful aid to students of other, related scientific disciplines where an overview or aspects of veterinary physiology is required...The text is readily populated? with very high-quality illustrations, which prove extremely useful in helping to visualise and understand? the concepts? and information presented."
