Where can you find diagrams comparing the gastrointestinal tracts of carnivorous and herbivorous marsupials? Just open the The Large Intestine to pages 18 and 19, and you will find drawings of the guts of eight of these creatures, showing clearly the colon is larger and more complex in plant eaters! This is but one example of the wealth of information stored in this wonderful new book.
Earlier texts do not cover physiology and pathophysiology to the degree this book does. It is a multiauthored book, but is well organized. There is very little redundancy, and the chapters are uniformally well
