This book provides a suitable test for fish biologists who may be seeking a text for a course or a readily accessible source of information on various aspects of fish physiology. The authors for this volume have been carefully selected from the tanks of active researchers who are best able to summarize the state-of-the-art as of the end of 1992. The chapters, by definition, will be somewhat dated once they are published, but my hope is that they will form bases for historical reference and future research in the areas covered. Some areas of interest are missing, most notably aspects of brain structure and function, but I have tried to select the areas of greatest general interest, based upon 25 years of reading, writing, and lecturing in fish physiology and comparative physiology.
