Media reviews

"It is, in short, a very fine contribution to the field of endocrinology and given the sheer breadth of coverage also a labour of love by the author. Peter Bentley has done the field of endocrinology a service."
- Andrew Loudon, The Endocrinologist

"Comparative Vertebrate Endocrinology will be a most useful text for those with a deep interest in endocrinology as well as to those who merely wish to have a pithy analysis of some aspect of hormones and their role in vertebrate physiology."
- General and Comparative Endocrinology
