Название: Avian Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Автор: Lewis Stevens
The biology of birds is diverse and frequently differs significantly from other vertebrates. Many birds migrate
or fly at high altitudes, while egg-laying and feather production places high demands on nutrient uptake and
storage. This book is the only comprehensive and up-to-date survey of avian biochemistry and molecular biology
available. It emphasises the similarities and differences between birds and other vertebrates, concentrating on
new developments. The first section deals with protein, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, its hormonal control and the adaptations that occur in birds. The second covers the avian genome, gene expression and avian immunology. Growth and embryological development are also discussed.
