Physiology is the study of the physical and biochemical functions of living organisms. A good baseline understanding of micro and gross anatomy is needed to appreciate how the various organ systems function and how they interact, communicate and integrate with each other.
Anatomy of the Horse 6th Edition book contains updates to functional anatomy which has now been totally revised. There are also new chapters on the eye, abdomen, female reproduction, ultrasonography and orthopaedics. The atlas is superbly illustrated throughout with colour drawings, photographs, and radiographs providing the reader with detailed information on the structure, function, and clinical application of all equine body systems and their interaction in the live animal.
Satisfactory investigations of the equine foot appear to be limited by the histo-morphological complexity of internal hoof structures. Foot lameness is considered to be one of the most debilitating pathological disorders of the equine foot. In most species, foot lameness is traditionally linked to hoof deformity, and a set of molecular events have been defined in relation to the disease. So far, there is controversy regarding the incidence of foot lameness in horses, as it is unclear whether it is foot lameness that triggers hoof distortions or vice-versa. In order to develop a better understanding of foot lameness, we review both the healthy and lame foot anatomy, cell biology and vascularisation and using micro-computed tomography show new methods of visualising internal structures within the equine foot.

DOI: The forces of evolution have produced in the equine foot a miracle of bioengineering. However, despite being a success in its natural environment, the equine foot becomes a common site of disease and injury when subjected to the demands of human domestication.
Microscopic Anatomy - study of tissues and cells that can only be seen with the aid of a microscope. Comparative Anatomy - study of the structures of various species of animals with emphasis on characteristics that aid in classication. Tissues Epithelial Cover the surface of the body Line body cavities Form glands Connective Hold structures together Muscle Specialized in contraction Nervous Specialized in communication Specialized Cells In animals, cells are usually specialized to perform one or more of the functions of the animal body. Function: Connects other tissues Give form and strength Elastic Tissue Contain kinked bers that regain their original shape after being stretched Collagenous Tissue Has remarkable tensile strength Fibroblasts produce long proteinaceous bbers of collagen Regular, irregular, and loose Reticular Tissue Fine brils and cells Makes up framework for endocrine and lymphatic organs Adipose Tissue Also known as fat White fat Brown fat hibernating fat - found in neonatal foals Adipocytes store fat as inclusions within the cell Cartilage Firmer than brous tissue but not as hard as bone Chondrocytes Three types Hyaline Elastic Fibrous Bone Bone is produced by osteoblasts Osteoid tissue becomes calcied Arrangements: Cancellous Spongy Compact Laminated cylinders.

В отчаянии он наблюдал за тем, как расплывчатые фигуры агентов обыскивают бездыханные тела в поисках листка бумаги с беспорядочным набором букв и цифр. - О мой Бог! - Лицо Джаббы мертвенно побледнело. - Они ничего не найдут. Мы погибли.
Однажды, в первый год своей работы в агентстве, Сьюзан заглянула в комнату новых криптографов за какими-то бумагами. Уже направляясь к двери, она увидела свое фото на доске объявлений и едва не лишилась чувств. На фотографии она была изображена наклонившейся над постелью, в одних трусиках.
