Color Atlas of Veterinary Anatomy, Volume 2: The Horse (2nd Edition)

The colour Atlas of Veterinary Anatomy quantity 2 provides a special photographic checklist of dissections exhibiting the topographical anatomy of the pony. With this booklet it is possible for you to to work out the location and relationships of the bones, muscle mass, nerves, blood vessels and viscera that visit make up each one sector of the physique and every organ process.

Growth of Farm Animals

An realizing of the strategies that vary the form and composition of livestock is prime to all elements of construction. The publication presents a complete photo of the way animals develop, switch fit and in composition, and of the criteria which have an effect on development techniques and dictate the level and course of adjustments in the animal.

Example text

6 Describe how reset and positive-feedback systems create useful change. 7 Organization of Regulatory and Organ Systems Control of an animal’s functions is often—erroneously— portrayed as a centralized command system with the brain and endocrine systems regulating everything. In fact, such a design would be needlessly cumbersome and slow because every tiny response needed by each cell or tissue for homeostasis would require these events: a signal to a central command organ; a decision; a return signal; and finally a local response.

By enhancing the basic ability of cells to respond to changes in their environments, neurons generate and transmit to other regions electrical impulses that relay information about stimuli such as light, temperature, nutrient concentrations, and so on.

Editorial review has deemed that any suppressed content does not materially affect the overall learning experience.

Evolution has also come up with two other mechanisms for regulating useful nonhomeostatic change, which we mention frequently in later chapters: • Reset system: one that changes the set point of a negative-feedback system, in a temporary, permanent, or cyclic fashion (Figure 1-10a). Fever is an example of a temporary reset of body temperature. At sexual maturity in a mammal, sex hormone concentrations are permanently reset to higher levels. Annual hibernation (such as by a squirrel) and many reproductive cycles are additional examples of cyclical resets regulated by internal biological clocks (see Chapter 7).
