"...is true to the fundamentals and recent developments in metabolic research and points the way to future, deeper convergence of metabolism and genetics." (American Journal of Human Biology, July/August 2005)
"…this book offers a wide menu of interesting biology...it is a highly recommended read for anyone interested in integrative biology." (Clinical Biochemistry, June 2005)
"Storey and other contributors...have created an exceptional volume, looking at this process and its effect on living beings." (E-STREAMS, April 2005)
"...valuable reading for students and researchers alike. It established an essential integrative and comparative mentality...and is an encyclopedic source for researchers…" (The Journal of Experimental Biology, March 2005)
