New Book Announcement
Fish Histology
From Cells to Organs
March 2017
Doaa M. Mokhtar, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Anatomy and Histology, Faculty
of Veterinary Medicine, Assiut University, Egypt
This new volume, Fish Histology: From Cells to Organs,
provides up-to-date information that emphasizes the relationships
and concepts by which cell and tissue structures of fish are
inextricably linked with their function. The book also describes the
most recent development in the sciences of fish histology.
Histology is the discipline of biology that involves the microscopic
examination of tissue sections in order to study their structure and
correlate it with function. Histology can detect signs of disease not
easily recognized on gross examination and can therefore be of
interest in fish health supervision. With fish constituting nearly 60%
of all vertebrate species and of major worldwide economic importance
as a food source, the information presented here will be valuable.
The volume begins with concise introduction into the histological
techniques for fish sampling, followed by an accurate up-to-date
description of fish tissues. A chapter is devoted to each organ and
organ systems in fish body as well. In addition, the book includes
particular diagrams to illustrate the structure of organs and to
enhance the usefulness of the text.
This volume is designed for use by veterinary medical scientists,
researchers, biologists, ichthyologists, fish farmers, veterinarians
working in fisheries and, of course, by comparative histologists who
want to learn more about the fish world. As a further aid to learning
and identification, numerous photomicrographs and electron
micrographs accompany the text, with particular emphasis on
diagrams and tables to summarize morphologic and functional
features of cells, tissues, and organs.
