Reviews

"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
