Which book should I buy?

The recommended course book is one of the following:

  1. Hill, R. W., Wyse, G. A. & Anderson, M. Animal Physiology (Sinauer, 2008).  Second edition. ISBN 978-0-87893-317-4
  2. Boron, W. F. & Boulpaev, E. L. Medical Physiology. A cellular and molecular approach . Updated edition. (Elsevier Saunders, Philadelphia, 2005). ISBN - 13:978-1-4160-2328-9. ISBN - 10:1-4160-2328-3

Book #1 is better for those more inclined towards Animal and Comparative Physiology. Book #2 is more appropriate for those inclined towards Human and Medical Physiology.


As alternative books the students can choose between one of the following:

  • Sherwood, L., Klandorf, H. & Yancey, P. H. Animal Physiology. From genes to organisms (Thomson, Brooks/Cole, 2005).
  • Sherwood, L. Human Physiology. From cells to systems (Thomson, Brooks/Cole, 2007).
  • Silverthorn, D. U. Human Physiology. An integrated approach (Pearson, Benjamin Cummings, San Francisco, 2007).
