Product Description
This book describes the respiratory function of the lungs in a variety of circumstances and indicates how the function can be assessed. The function includes lung ventilation, gas exchange and lung perfusion with their respective physiological control mechanisms. The circumstances include the resting state, sleep, exercise, abnormal environments and diseases of the lung and other organs. The applications are in respiratory medicine including lung function laboratories and in paediatrics, geriatrics, environmental, occupational and sports medicine and medico-legal work. The material that has been assembled is also likely to be of use to non-respiratory physiologists, bio-engineers, ergonomists, anthropologists and other scientists.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
