About this book

This book comprehensively reviews fish immunology - their health, interactions between fish and their pathogens, and the impact the environment has on these interactions. Leading authorities provide the essential foundation to the studies of fish immunology.

Volume 15 in the series, The Fish Immune System (ISBN 0-12-350439-2), edited by Iwama and Nakanishi, is an excellent source for those who wish to review the immunology of fish... the only comprehensive, single-volume reference on the fish immune system... As fish are increasingly used as model systems for vertebrate immune systems, The Fish Immune System will be a crucial reference. --TROPICAL FISH HOBBYIST
