About this book

In the compiling of this book, the vast literature dealing with the descriptive morphology, histology and cytology of teleost development has been combed and integrated. The book is divided into 21 chapters, starting with the egg and embryonic development up to hatching. This is followed by a description of ectodermal, mesodermal and entodermal derivatives and the development of various organs. The subject index, species index and the abundant illustrations add extra value to this long awaited book. "Developmental Biology of Teleost Fishes" will be a valuable tool for scientists and students in the fields of biology, developmental biology, molecular biology and fish biology.

Media reviews

This volume on the Developmental Biology of Teleost Fishes is long overdue and most welcome. It is a magnificent achievement by a distinguished scientist who has devoted her career to the subject. It provides a goldmine of information, from classic descriptions of fish embryology to modern cell and molecular analyses. Extensively referenced, it is a must read for anyone studying or simply interested in teleost fish development, such as fish breeders. Its scope is astonishing; reviewing the literature from early in the 19th century (the earliest reference I found was 1833) to the present. The summaries provided at the end of each section are particularly helpful in emphasizing the key points. There are over 24,000 species of teleost fish; hence, the enormity of the undertaking by the author. Fortunately for us, she provides everything you ever wanted to know about fish development and more! John Dowling, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University, USA
