Summary "This volume provides an extensive comparison of the physiological responses of invertebrates, fish, amphibians, and mammals and focuses on the impact of endocrine disruption. It also considers how toxicants and thermal stress cause the expression of stress proteins and includes a study of the impact of genetic variability. The book concludes with an examination of thermoregulatory response to natural toxins and venoms."--BOOK JACKET
