As Dr. Wilson's preface states, this is a teaching manual in the laboratory practice of physiologic chemistry and not a comprehensive reference book. An introductory section comprises experiments illustrating fundamental chemical laws and those aspects of the organic chemistry of carbohydrates, fats and proteins important to the biochemist. The second section of the book contains experiments concerned with the chemical nature of body tissues and fluids and includes the material on qualitative and quantitative blood and urine analyses usually taught in medical courses in biochemistry. There are also a number of experiments designed to demonstrate the various dietary deficiencies in laboratory animals. The alternate pages of the book have been left blank so that the manual can be used as a laboratory notebook. The practical and continued value of the manual is attested by this being the fifth edition.
