This volume describes a comprehensive but simple technique for determination of the intestinal absorptive surface area in mammals of different sizes (from harvest mouse to horse). It is a treatise of research carried out by the author over 25 years and covers morphology and morphometry of the large intestine - specifically the caecum of mammals.
