About this book

Many physiological processes are regulated by the movement of ions into and out of organs, tissues, and cells. During the past decade, a variety of new techniques and approaches have contributed to a deeper understanding of the myriad influences ions have on the function and structure of organisms. From respiration and excretion to neurological control and metabolic processing, ions and their regulation occupy a central role in physiology of fish as well as other organisms. This title offers a comprehensive update of ionic regulation in fish. It focuses on wide variety of organ systems and the influence of ions on organ system function. Contributions are from an international group.

Volume 14, Cellular and Molecular Approaches to Fish Ionic Regulation, provides an essential update... presents detailed descriptions of cutting-edge techniques and new approaches at the cellular and molecular levels that are playing a central role in pushing forward the frontiers of this diverse field. --TRANSACTIONS OF AMERICAN FISHERIES SOCIETY
