Comparative physiology is a subdiscipline of physiology that studies and exploits the diversity of functional characteristics of various kinds of is closely related to evolutionary physiology and environmental universities offer undergraduate courses that cover comparative aspects of animal physiology.

Birds have a unique physiology that is often closely linked to the energetic demands of flying. As flying uses a lot of energy, they have high metabolisms, high body temperatures and an incredibly efficient respiratory system during flight. Avian Functional Biology.

Birds belong to a group of diapsids called the archosaurs, which includes three other groups: living crocodilians, pterosaurs, and dinosaurs. Overwhelming evidence shows that birds evolved within the clade Dinosauria, which is further subdivided into two groups, the Saurischia (“lizard hips”) and the Ornithischia (“bird hips”).

Historically, comparative biology has investigated the similarities and differences in the morphology and physiology of organisms. This convention is being confused with the new statistical approach to comparative biology that emphasizes identifying phylogenetic relationships and Cited by: Adaptation is a key concept in comparative physiology.

Adaptation at the population level is genetic, i.e. changes in gene frequencies, while individual animals adapt to environmental changes by non-genetic mechanisms.

In comparative physiology, such adaptation is referred to as acclimatization, whereas in many other branches of biology. Continued class ntoes on vertebrate diversity - birds. This feature is not available right now. Please try again later.

It will now be my own first reference source about birds, and it should be yours, too – regardless of whether you are a backyard bird watcher, a hard-core birder, or a professional ornithologist.”.

This book summarizes state of the art of starvation biology from the ecological causes of food limitation to the physiological and evolutionary consequences of prolonged fasting. It is written for an audience with an understanding of general principles in animal physiology, yet offers a level of analysis and interpretation that will engage.

The most obvious characteristic that sets birds apart from other modern vertebrates is the presence of feathers, which are modified scales. While vertebrates like bats fly without feathers, birds rely on feathers and wings, along with other modifications of body structure and physiology, for flight.
