This new edition is the work of 13 authors. It contains extensive discussions of blood and circulation, respiration, the alimentary tract, metabolism and nutrition, the distribution and regulation of body fluids, endocrinology, the neuromuscular system, the central nervous system, and the special senses. There is no special section on reproduction. Some of the essential phenomena are dealt with in the chapters on the circulation and on endocrinology. The physiology of the skin is similarly represented by various passages in the sections on body fluids, circulation, and neurosensory mechanisms, and the physiology of the ureters and urinary bladder is mentioned in connection with the autonomic nervous system. The present edition of this work is probably most valuable for its thorough treatment of the physiology of the central nervous system and for its bibliography. It is well indexed.
