Bioenergetics is the name given to the collection of disciplines within biochemistry and physiology that aims at a description and understanding of the function of living systems. These functions include the exchange, metabolism, and accumulation of matter as well as their related energy transformations. The authors present an accessible textbook providing the reader with the fundamental principles of the subject and how these can be applied to practical problems.

"...interesting and informative...[T]his valuable book is a practical and useful reference for anyone interested in metabolism and growth, and the energy exchanges that accompany these processes." Edwin H. Battley, Quarterly Review of Biology "...an interesting and informative book...All the chapters have numerous examples of the application of the material in a given chapter. These are very useful, and constitute one of the strong points of the book...this valuable book is a practical and useful reference for anyone intersted in metabolism and growth, and the energy exchanges that accompany these processes." Edwin H. Battleym The Quarterly Review of Biology
