This book discusses in detail the technical aspects of apparatus and procedure used in measuring the rate at which an isolated tissue consumes oxygen and produces carbon dioxide. Although it is likely to interest the general reader as illustrating the high degree of refinement that has been attained in this field of scientific work, it is intended simply for use in research laboratories where the respiration of cells and tissues is being studied; the diagrams, tables and bibliography make it an excellent book for this purpose.
