The two volume set will not only provide comprehensive coverage of our current state of knowledge in this very active and growing field of research, but will also highlight the tremendous diversity in cardiovascular morphology and function among the various fish taxa, and the anatomical and physiological plasticity shown by this system when faced with various abiotic and biotic challenges. Finally, these chapters will integrate molecular and cellular data with the growing body of knowledge on heart and in vivo cardiovascular function, and as a result, provide insights into some of the most interesting, and important, questions that still need to be answered in this field. This volume is a comprehensive overview of cardiovascular structure and function in fish The volumes will be of great interest to researchers in fish physiology and audiences within the fields of comparative morphology and histology, aquaculture and ecophysiology

Dr. A. Kurt Gamperl is a comparative physiologist whose main research interest is to understand how environmental and physiological variables interact to affect fish biology. Central to this research are the role that blood oxygen transport, cardiac function, stress and humoral and/or biochemical factors play in mediating fish "perform...
