While advances in marine biotechnology will certainly enhance our capabilities in the marine realm, what we learn there will doubtless provide new insight into the biology of freshwater and terrestrial organisms. This volume is a compilation of information that covers a wide range of animal groups. This book will be of interest not only to biotechnologists but also to aquaculturists, comparative animal physiologists, comparative endocrinologists, and developmental biologists.
