Handbook of Hormones: Comparative Endocrinology for Basic and Clinical Research collates fundamental information about the structure and function of hormones from basic biology to clinical use. The handbook offers a rapid way to obtain specific facts about the chemical and molecular characteristics of hormones, their receptors and signalling. Comparative endocrinology helps to find the roots of homeostatic regulation in organisms. In this context, many years ago a series of experiments were done, which demonstrated the hormonal regula­ tion also on the invertebrate level. The mechanisms are partly similar, partly different, from those found in vertebrates.

  Vertebrate Endocrinology by David O. Norris, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(14). This publication was conceived during the Eighth International Symposium on Comparative Endocrinology, held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in June , when the need was identified for a balanced in-depth account of modern insect endocrinology. About 60 authors contributed to the 48 papers here presented, which are arranged under the headings general considerations and historical .

General and Comparative Endocrinology is a peer-reviewed journal published by Elsevier which focuses on all aspects of the endocrine systems of vertebrates and invertebrates. It was established in and the editors-in-chief are R. M. Dores (University of Denver) and D. M. Power (University of the Algarve).According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a impact factor of 2 Discipline: Endocrinology. Description Advances in Invertebrate (Neuro)Endocrinology: A Collection of Reviews in the Post-Genomic Era (2-volume set) provides an informative series of reviews from expert scientists who are at the forefront of their research into the endocrinology of invertebrates. These two volumes are timely and appropriate in this post-genomic era because of the rapid pace of change brought about by Seller Rating: % positive.

Books shelved as invertebrates: The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration Into the Wonder of Consciousness by Sy Montgomery, Invertebrates by Rich. In contrast to general endocrinology, which emphasizes similarities, usually among mammals, comparative endocrinology has a much broader focus that includes field and environmental endocrine studies, evolutionary studies, and behavioral endocrinology in many different animal systems.

This book undertakes the daunting task of covering most of the diverse endocrine systems that exist among invertebrates. The papers in this book will advance our knowledge of invertebrate endocrinology but also of endocrinology in general, making the book will be valuable to researchers and students.

General and Comparative Endocrinology will consider for publication of research articles that address endocrinology in its widest sense, i.e.

both among, and within, living organisms - vertebrate, invertebrate and plant - including their evolutionary antecedents. 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.

Comparative Vertebrate Neuroanatomy Evolution and Adaptation Second Edition Ann B. Butler and William Hodos The Second Edition of this landmark text presents a broad survey of comparative vertebrate neuroanatomy at the introductory level, representing a unique contribution to the field of evolutionary neurobiology.

It has been extensively. Vertebrate Endocrinology represents more than just a treatment of the endocrine system-it integrates hormones with other chemical bioregulatory agents not classically included with the endocrine system. It provides a complete overview of the endocrine system of vertebrates by first emphasizing the mammalian system as the basis of most terminology and understanding of endocrine Reviews: 1.
