It deals with the hazards in handling chemical carcinogens, their storage, and methods for the disposal of chemical carcinogens and spillage treatment. Read this book and take suitable action. It is better to be safe than sorry. Avian Physiology. Fourth EditionEdited by P. The first edition of Avian Physiology was published in and since then there has been a considerable increase in knowledge of bird physiology and this has been reflected in the growth in size and coverage of the editions of this book.
There are now 21 authors contributing to the chapters providing specialized coverage. The scope of the volume is greater than indicated by the word "physiology" since there are also chapters on energy metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, protein metabolism, and lipid metabolism. There are two new chapters that were not present in previous editions, one on muscle and the other on immunophysiology.
All the chapters in this edition have been expanded, brought up to date, are well illustrated and have their own bibliography. This volume maintains the high standard of the previous editions and is the first source that readers should consult on avian physiology, endocrinology, immunophysiology, and metabolism.
Grand challenges 3: Reproduction in hens: 3A. How are follicles recruited and how is the follicular hierarchy maintained?
How is the circadian pattern of ovulation and oviposition achieved? Are there ovarian and oviductal oscillators? What is the cross-talk between the ovary and oviduct? The control of passage of the egg through the oviduct is only understood in what might be argued is at a fairly rudimentary manner.
Grand challenge 3: There are large numbers of avian cytokines identified. Their role in the control of immune functioning is beginning to be elucidated but greater depth understanding is needed.
What is not clear is whether these avian cytokines have non-immune related actions. Grand challenge 4: What are the physiological adaption mechanisms that allow unique life patterns in avian species such as living in very cold water or on ice for penguins, consuming decomposing tissues from the carcasses of dead animals in scavenging birds such as vultures and living in disparate environmental with extremes of temperature, rainfall and atmospheric pressure?
Alternatively, have entire new control systems developed? Grand challenge 6: To understand the hormonal control of growth.
Particular attention should be played to the gastro-intestinal tract and to regions of the brain including those responsible for bird song. Metabolomics, coupled with non-radioactive isotopes, offer tremendous scope for developing knowledge on the control of the metabolism of birds ranging from a fast-growing broiler chicken to birds migrating thousands of miles. Grand challenge 8: To use non-radioactive isotopes and other techniques of metabolomics to provide comprehensive information and ultimately to fully understand of the physiological control of metabolism in birds.
It is becoming increasing evident that the microbiome of an animal markedly influences its functioning. Grand challenge 9: This is to develop a database of sufficient depth to understand the relationships between the microbiome and gastro-intestinal functioning.
Grand challenge This is to build on the existence strong avian models and to develop new avian models. Grand challenge This consists of the following, having first determined the influence of stressors including disease and specific toxicant. The challenge is to understand what the physiology of an unstressed bird is. The importance of stress, toxicology and pathology to avian physiology can be manifest in the following situations: Are we investigating a physiological meaningful situation or an artifact of an infectious disease or stress or exposure to a toxicant such as oil?
Irrespective of whether or not we are. Do we understand the effects of specific environmental stressors e. All aspects of avian physiology will be covered in this section of Frontiers in Physiology.

Sturkie's avian physiology Author: C G Scanes Publisher: London, England: Academic Press, Sixth edition View all editions and formats Summary: Sturkie's Avian Physiology is the classic comprehensive single volume on the physiology of domestic as well as wild birds.
The Sixth Edition is thoroughly revised and updated, and features several new chapters with entirely new content on such topics as migration, genomics and epigenetics.
Chapters throughout have been greatly expanded due to the many recent advances in the field. The text also covers the physiology of flight, reproduction in both male and female birds, and the immunophysiology of birds. The Sixth Edition, like the earlier editions, is a must for anyone intere. Read more Show all links. Allow this favorite library to be seen by others Keep this favorite library private.
