Website: Physiological and Biochemical Zoology has presented current research in environmental, adaptational, and comparative physiology and biochemistry since 1928. The journal publishes the results of original investigations in animal physiology and biochemistry at all levels of organization, from the molecular to the organismic, focusing on adaptations to the environment. PBZ's specific emphasis is on studies that investigate the ecological and/or evolutionary aspects of physiological and biochemical mechanisms. Subdisciplines of interest include nutrition and digestion, salt and water balance, epithelial and membrane transport, gas exchange and transport, acid-base balance, temperature adaptation, metabolic energetics and regulation, structure and function of macromolecules, chemical coordination and signal transduction, nitrogen metabolism and excretion, locomotion and muscle function, biomechanics, circulation, and sensory physiology and neural coordination. Multi-species comparative studies should give due consideration to phylogeny when conducting statistical analyses and drawing evolutionary interpretations.
