By William H. Dantzler

This
second version deals a entire evaluate of the physiological functions
of vertebrate kidneys from a comparative standpoint, with specific emphasis on

glomerular ultrafiltration; tubular shipping of inorganic ions, organic
substances, and fluid; and urine dilution and concentration.
Mammalian renal functionality is simply thought of for reasons of comparability with
nonmammalian renal functionality and as a body of reference for a few of the
discussions. the most important findings on nonmammalian renal functionality and the
important unanswered questions raised via these findings are defined in detail.
As such, the booklet offers entire details on comparative renal function
for organic scientists and complicated scholars of biology with a few knowledge
