Summary "In this book several specialists have analyzed and reviewed the new data on fish osmoregulation. The chapters present an integrative synthesis of the different aspects of osmoregulation in specific situations, function of osmoregulatory organs, general mechanisms and endocrine control. In addition, interactions of osmoregulatory mechanisms with the immune system, diet and metabolism are reviewed. New techniques to study osmoregulation have been analyzed."--Jacket
