William H. A big topic demands a big book, with some big thinkers behind it. When I agreed to review this book, I knew, given the authors, that I would see some big thinking, but the size of their effort took me by surprise. Physiological Ecology all pages, 2. The authors, William H. There is much of interest here for anyone concerned with key aspects of the ecological functioning of animals, with the stated target audience being advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and practicing ecologists interested in how resources are processed by animals in food webs.

Section 4 follows the fate of absorbed materials to consider postabsorptive nutrient processing, the meaning of stable isotope signatures in animal tissues, and the physiology of toxin handling. Next is a section on the role of limiting nutrients, with treatments of ecological stoichiometry, of nitrogen and mineral nutrition, and of water limitation.
The book closes with section 6, two comprehensive chapters dealing with energy and mass budgets as connected to growth and to reproductive output.
I found this book both fascinating and entertaining. It brings to the forefront some cutting-edge ideas in ecology and functional biology, such as metabolic scaling theory, ecological stoichiometry, and isotopic resource tracking. The emphasis on careful, phylogenetically controlled analyses in comparative studies is important and well presented.
This style will make the book especially effective as a text in upper-division animal physiological ecology courses. That said, there are some problems. The authors rely heavily on information boxes, particularly to cover methodological approaches.
Some readers will find these boxes invaluable, especially those readers new to physiological research who need to learn more about how things are done.
Others will find some of them distracting, too long, or unnecessary e.
In reading groups such as the one in my lab, some members assigned to lead discussions of certain chapters may find themselves feeling victimized by the extreme variation in chapter length from 27 to 93 pages.
The editing in the text was generally thorough but less so in the figures and figure legends.
For the most part, though, these are minor matters. The book is solid, engaging, and effective in presenting animal physiological ecology as the modern and vibrant field it is.
So if animals and food webs are central to your interests, you should read this book.
