This new series on The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Fishes grew out of the demand for state-of-the-art review articles in a rapidly expanding field of research. Up to the present, most research literature on biochemistry involved rats and humans, but new breakthroughs in the piscine setting have indicated that the field is ready for a review series of its own. Because of funding and experimental availability restrictions, most research in the field has dealt with fish and insects. Within the insect field, comparative biochemistry and comparative physiology have proceeded along independent paths as opposed to the piscine field, where the tendency has been for the latter to envelop the former. This volume sets out to make comparative biochemistry and comparative physiology independent of each other within the piscine setting, another important rationale for this review series as well as detailing the phylogenetic evolution of fishes. The goal of the series is to provide researchers and students with an appropriate balance between experimental results and theoretical concepts.

@qu:The audiences to which this excellent quality volume will appeal include graduate students and professors in courses and seminars in comparative biochemistry (this book could supplement the textbook) and researchers in piscine biochemistry. Those in mammalian to microbial biochemistry will find the theoretical advances stimulating. Investigators in applied fields, such as fish health and toxicology, could add this useful in-depth reference to their libraries. @source:Fisheries Review @qu:...should be especially useful to graduate students, who will find this an effective reference for quickly surveying a diversity of profitable research techniques. @source:Transactions of the American Fisheries Society
