The purpose of this Handbook is to bring together all the available information on the nutritional requirements of animal organisms for specific processes and functions. This is believed to be the first systematic treatment of nutrition in a functional context. Apart from furnishing specific nutritional data, this Handbook provides a useful framework for a comparative physiologist or biochemist searching for commonality or idfferences among various biological systems.
