Calcium and similar cations are quickly being regarded for his or her position as very important elements of animal body structure. while attempting to solution questions equivalent to why salmon can comply with existence in clean water in addition to seawater, or why chilli peppers style scorching to people yet evoke little reaction from chickens, we regularly locate the solutions lie in styles of move of those ions and their roles in sensing, transmitting and amassing messages. Bringing jointly scattered literature on calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium in biology, this ebook examines vital organic contributions of those ions together with enzyme activation, results in all kinds of muscle and biomineralization. cognizance is targeted on: channel development and ion circulate; calcium as a moment messenger and within the development of solids and ion channelopathies, with the aid of personalities comparable to Agatha Christie, van Gogh and Captain cook dinner. The function of Calcium and similar Cations in Animal Behaviour may be valued by way of a wide-range of readers together with scholars of bioinorganic chemistry and animal behavioural reviews, lecturers and different pros in academia.
