The Cardiovascular System: Part A
[Fish Physiology Series - Vol 12 PART A]
By W.S. Hoar, D.J. Randall and A.P. Farrell
Publisher: Academic Press
A considerable amount of new information has accumulated in recent years concerning the cardiovascular system of fishes. As a result we now have a better understanding of the cardiovascular diversity among fishes, and a number of unifying concepts have emerged regarding both design and function. The present understanding of the cardiovascular system is presented in Volumes XIIA and XIIB. The circulatory system of fish is divided into primary and secondary circulations (Chapters 2A, 3A, and 4A). Fish do not have a lymphatic system. Both peripheral and central nervous, as well as humoral, control are reviewed in this volume (Chapters 4B,5B, 6B, and 7B).
