About this book

This is the first handbook on comparative vertebrate immunology that is not restricted to the study of mice and human immune systems. It describes the immune systems of about 20 main animals, including fish and amphibians.

This comprehensive publication compiled by an international team of renowned immunologists is a successful attempt to present an updated view on immune systems of most important species of wild, domestic, and laboratory animals. An enormous amount of basic and practical information contained in the treatise is indispensable for scientists working in different areas of immunology. The volume is lavishly illustrated and a lot of useful information is presented in concise, tabular form. The Handbook of Vertebrate Immunology is a very timely publication and it is highly recommended to all immunologists. --IMMUNOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS
