Biochemical adaptation by Peter W Hochachka( )

42 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of biochemical adaption provides fascinating insights into how organisms "work" and how they evolve to sustain physiological function under a vast array of environmental conditions. This book describes how the abilities of organisms to thrive in widely different environments derive from two fundamental classes of biochemical adaptions: modifications of core biochemical processes that allow a common set of physiological functions to be conserved, and "inventions" of new biochemical traits that allow entry into novel habitats. Biochemical Adaptation: Mechanisms and Process in Physiolog
Strategies of biochemical adaptation by Peter W Hochachka( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living without oxygen : closed and open systems in hypoxia tolerance by Peter W Hochachka( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innumerable clinical problems have as their basis some derangement in oxygen-dependent metabolism. To explore mechanisms of adjusting to oxygen limitation, Living without Oxygen presents a bestiary of exotic anaerobes that illuminate elements of metabolic biochemistry only dimly seen in studies using standard experimental animals. The book places the enzymatic and biochemical machinery firmly in the biological context and assumes only a modest familiarity with bioenergetics and metabolic biochemistry
Metabolic arrest and the control of biological time by Peter W Hochachka( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and German and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Environmental and ecological biochemistry by Peter W Hochachka( )

14 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fifth volume in this established series deals with the biochemical responses of fish to different environmental/ecological factors. Topics covered include oxygen availability, effects of temperature and pressure, adverse effects of metabolites, effects of stress and many more. The book should be of interest to fish biochemists and physiologists, aquaculturists and many other fisheries and animal scientists
Metabolic biochemistry by Peter W Hochachka( )

16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fourth volume in the series covers such topics as endogenous fuels, electric organs, histidine-related dipeptides, and origins of luciferins. The book will be invaluable to fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and animal biochemists, physiologists and endocrinologists; it will provide researchers and students with a pertinent information source from theoretical and experimental angles
Muscles as molecular and metabolic machines by Peter W Hochachka( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analytical techniques by T. P Mommsen( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume in the series covers such topics as anaesthetics, cannulation and injection techniques, and surgery. The book will be invaluable to fisheries scientists, aquaculturists, and animal biochemists, physiologists and endocrinologists; it will provide researchers and students with a pertinent information source from theoretical and experimental angles
Phylogenetic and biochemical perspectives by T. P Mommsen( )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new series on The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Fishes grew out of the demand for state-of-the-art review articles in a rapidly expanding field of research. Up to the present, most research literature on biochemistry involved rats and humans, but new breakthroughs in the piscine setting have indicated that the field is ready for a review series of its own. Because of funding and experimental availability restrictions, most research in the field has dealt with fish and insects. Within the insect field, comparative biochemistry and comparative physiology have proceeded along inde
