Energy for Animal Life

R. McNeill Alexander

Oxford Animal Biology Series

Life depends on energy, and the majority of animal activity centers around finding energy in the form of food. Energy for Animal Life, the first book in the innovative new Oxford Animal Biology Series, gives a thorough yet precise description of how animals get and use energy. Drawing broad comparisons, this textbook encompasses every stage of the food chain and includes several chapters that explore the energy costs of motion and the energy demands of growth and reproduction.
