| Book Description: |
What mechanisms turn down (or off) cell metabolism and other cell functions? How does an animal such as an opossum know when to activate mechanisms for slowing or stopping tissue and organ functions? These capabilities raise important questions, which Hochachka and Guppy explore in this seminal new book. This is a pioneering book of great use to biomedical/clinical researchers and to biologists, biochemists, and physiologists generally.
