While replacing and reducing the use of laboratory animals are integral parts of the 3Rs—replace, reduce, refine—which form the cornerstones of laboratory animal science, biomedical research involving animals remains absolutely essential for the advancement of the medical, veterinary, agricultural, and biological sciences. Building upon the bestselling previous edition, the Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Volume III, Third Edition: Animal Models complements volumes I and II of the third edition by completing the task of providing a comprehensive overview of animal models in all biomedical disciplines. The three Rs have been integrated throughout this handbook to promote efficient and humane experimental work with animals. Written by international experts, each chapter focuses on an important subdiscipline of laboratory animal science and can be used as a stand-alone text. This volume contains new chapters for six additional disease animal models: spinal cord injury, cardiovascular diseases, sudden infant death syndrome, developmental disorders, eye diseases, and human cancer. It also presents a new chapter on applying reduction and refinement to animal models. This handbook can be used for undergraduate and postgraduate laboratory animal science courses, and as a handbook for scientists who work with animals in their research, for university veterinarians, for regulators, and for other specialists in laboratory animal science.

New scientific approaches have dramatically evolved in the decade since The Physiology of Fishes was first published. With the genomic revolution and a heightened understanding of molecular biology, we now have the tools and the knowledge to apply a fresh approach to the study of fishes. Consequently, The Physiology of Fishes, Third Edition is not merely another updating, but rather an entire reworking of the original. To satisfy that need for a fresh approach, the editors have employed a new set of expert contributors steeped in the very latest research; their contemporary perspective pervades the entire text. In addition to new chapters on gas transport, temperature physiology, and stress, as well as one dedicated to functional genomics, readers will discover that many of these new contributors approach their material with a contemporary molecular perspective. While much of the material is new, the editors have completely adhered to the original’s style in creating a text that continues to be highly readable and perpetually insightful in bridging the gap between pure and applied science. The Physiology of Fishes, Third Edition, completely updated with a molecular perspective, continues to be regarded as the best single-volume general reference on all major areas of research in fish physiology. The Physiology of Fishes, Third Edition provides background information for advanced students as well as material of interest to marine and fisheries biologists, ichthyologists, and comparative physiologists looking to differentiate between the physiological strategies unique to fishes, and those shared with other organisms.

Laboratory animal testing provides most of our current knowledge of human physiology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, and pathology. From studies of genetics in fruit flies to studies of cellular processes in genetically modified mice to recent dramatic developments in genetics, translational research, and personalized medicines, biomedical research involving animals remains absolutely essential for the advancement of the medical, veterinary, agricultural, and biological sciences and all rely on access to high-quality laboratory animals as models for humans. Rooted in the principle that good science can only be performed in environments that promote good animal welfare, this third edition of the bestselling Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Vol. 1, Essential Principles and Practices emphasizes the importance of implementing the three R’s: replacing live animals with alternative methods, reducing the number of animals used, and refining techniques to minimize animal discomfort, and integrates these humane principles into almost every chapter. See what's new in the Third Edition: New chapters: Applications of Radio-Telemetry in Small Laboratory Animals, Generation and analysis of genetically modified mice, and Physiological, Hematological, and Clinical Chemistry Parameters Additional mateiral on the international harmonization of practices and on the continued implementation of the refinement, reduction, and replacement of animal usage in laboratories Sixteen page color insert Relevant to virtually all areas of laboratory science and forming the cornerstone of laboratory animal science, each individual chapter focuses on an important subdiscipline of laboratory animal science including humane laws and guidelines; non-surgical, surgical, microsurgical, and post-mortem procedures; genetic modification; nutrition, feeding, and environmental factors; experiment design and alternative methods; and analgesia, anesthesia, and euthanasia. Each chapter can be read in series or as a stand alone text. A truly international effort from world renowned contributors, Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Vol. 1, Essential Principles and Practices, Third Edition is useful as a textbook in laboratory animal science courses for postgraduate and undergraduate students, as a handbook for scientists who work with animals in their research, and for university veterinarians, regulators, and other specialists in laboratory animal science.

Circadian rhythms influence most of our life activities, notably getting up and going to sleep every day. This new edition of Circadian Physiology delves into the mechanisms surrounding how these rhythms work, the physiology and biology behind them, and the latest research on this cutting-edge field. The book also discusses a wide variety of practical topics including the prevention of jet lag, management of shift work, sleep disorders, depression, and the optimal times for physical and intellectual activities. To facilitate its use as a textbook, the book contains summaries, suggestions for further reading, links to pertinent websites, and exercises at the end of each chapter. It also includes software for data analysis, tutorials, and simulation programs discussed throughout the text. In addition, more than a thousand references have been added, resulting in a total of more than 6000 references. The text has been thoroughly updated as a result of major advances in recent years. This edition adds discussion on the anatomical and physiological characterization of photoresponsive ganglionic cells in the mammalian retina, molecular circadian clocks in cells of multiple organs other than the hypothalamus and the pineal gland, and advances in the understanding of post-translational mechanisms in the operation of the molecular clock.
