Physiologists who are interested in the comparative behavior of plant and animal cells, tissues and organs will find this volume of interest in the field of electrical response. The book is the fourth volume of the "Monographien aus dem Gesamtgebiet der Physiologie der Pflanzen und Tieren." The first chapter deals with the physical basis of electrophysiology, particularly with the production of electrical energy from other forms of energy within the cells, and the transformation of electrical energy into other forms of energy. Electrical energy may arise from the transformation of chemical, osmotic, mechanical, photic or thermic energy, and may in turn be transformed into such types of energy. The discussion of the way in which these transformations occur forms an introductory chapter of considerable interest to the student of general physiology. The second chapter discusses the physical effects of electric currents, such as cataphoresis, electro-osmose and concentration changes, and the
