Biology and Physiology of the Osteoclast is a comprehensive volume thoroughly covering the field of osteoclast biology. The book features some of the latest work (much of which has never before been published) from internationally respected scientists in the field. It will be a significant reference volume for researchers interested in the broad field of bone metabolism, especially those in cell and molecular biology, dental science, endocrinology, hematology, orthopedics, and rheumatology.

Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
