Abstract

This is a textbook of 475 pages. The approach to the subject is with special emphasis on inorganic biochemistry, with correspondingly less emphasis on organic chemistry, tissue chemistry, blood, muscle and nerve.

This, the second, edition has been largely rewritten. Special chapters are provided for solutions and colloidal systems, steroids, pigments, tissue respiration and internal environment.

References are placed at the end of each chapter.

The difference in emphasis notable among British writers on biochemistry is exemplified in that as much space is devoted to the effect of onium salts on the maintenance of fluid equilibrium in elasmobranchs as is given to the essential amino acids (one-third page).

The material is presented in brief, concise form and is adequately systematized.
