Comparative vertebrate endocrinology
The third edition provides a description of hormones in animals and considers their evolution and roles in coordinating bodily functions and the control of calcium, water and salt levels in the body. Expand
Hepatic peroxisome proliferation in rodents and its significance for humans.
The available experimental evidence suggests a strong association and a probable casual link between peroxisome-proliferator-elicited liver growth and the subsequent development of liver tumours in rats and mice. Expand
Endocrines and Osmoregulation: A Comparative Account in Vertebrates
Osmotic problems of Vertebrates, the Vertebrate Endocrine System and the Amphibia. Expand
Uptake of Water by the Lizard, Moloch horridus
Reptiles living in arid conditions would find a water-permeable skin uneconomical for water conservation so that this mode of taking up water may be questioned for Moloch. Expand
Endocrines and Osmoregulation
Phospholipase A and the mechanism of action of aldosterone
Phospholipase A is identified in toad bladder and frog skin epithelial cells and in their incubation media and Mepacrine, an inhibitor of phospholipases A, blocked the response to aldosterone on Na transport. Expand
Asymmetrical permeability of the integument of tree frogs (Hylidae).
The skin from four species of North American tree frogs (Hylidae) was found in vitro, to be remarkably permeable to water in the presence or absence of the neurohypophysial hormone vasotocin. ThisExpand
Endocrine Pharmacology: Physiological Basis and Therapeutic Applications
The adrenal glands, the pituitary gland, the thyroid gland, and the renin-angiotensin system are studied in detail in this chapter. Expand
The vertebrate urinary bladder: osmoregulatory and other uses.

The bladder may serve more biological uses than simple storage and may play an osmoregulatory role, and the variability of permeability of the urinary bladder to water and solutes among species is discussed. Expand
