second edition offers a comprehensive overview of the physiological functions
of vertebrate kidneys from a comparative viewpoint, with particular emphasis on
nonmammalian vertebrates. The topics covered include renal structure;
glomerular ultrafiltration; tubular transport of inorganic ions, organic
substances, and fluid; and urine dilution and concentration.
Mammalian renal function is only considered for purposes of comparison with
nonmammalian renal function and as a frame of reference for some of the
discussions. The major findings on nonmammalian renal function and the
important unanswered questions raised by those findings are described in detail.
As such, the book provides comprehensive information on comparative renal function
for biological scientists and advanced students of biology with some knowledge
of physiology and a desire to know more about renal function in vertebrates,
and for mammalian renal physiologists who wish to obtain a broader view of
renal function.
