Environmental Signal Processing and Adaptation By Gerhard Heldmaier, Dietrich Werner
2003 | 287 Pages | ISBN: 3642628583 | PDF | 7 MB


Animals and plants live in changing environmental conditions which require adaptation in order to cope with this. Some of these environmental changes serve as signals which have to be “sensed” and interpreted correctly by the organisms to initiate the adaptation. This signal processing is based on biochemical, molecular and neuronal processes which are discussed in this book. All examples given underline that continuous adjustment of physiological functions is an essential requirement for life and survival in complex changing environments.
