About this book

28 plates with colour photos and colour illustrations

Clarifying much of the inconsistency currently encountered in the scientific literature, Histological Analysis of Endocrine Disruptive Effects on Small Laboratory Fish helps to standardize the interpretation of results from aquatic bioassays and field observations by describing basic biological function and contrasting normal histology with histopathological conditions in a variety of fish species. The authors represent the leaders of small fish gonadal histopathology, and they incorporate views and ideas from other experts.
