The endocrinology of fishes is considered in Volume II. Few fields of animal physiology have expanded more rapidly during the past decade.New factors, such as some of the neurohypophysial hormones, have been discovered in previously known endocrine organs; additional functions, such as those of prolactin, have been described for previously known hormones; new hormones, such as calcitonin, have been recognized in tissues(the ultimo branchial glands) which only a decade ago were not accepted as endocrine organs. This has been an exciting period in comparative endocrinology, and the aquatic vertebrates with their vast range of specialized functions have held the key to several significant discoveries- particularly those of phylogenetic interest.
Volume II will prove particularly valuable to fish endocrinologists and that it will also find an important place in the literature of comparative physiology and endocrinology.
