From the Back Cover:

As a species rich in biological data and relatively easy to raise and manage, Medaka is becoming an increasingly popular model organism for biological research. Long-used in Japan for its resilience and cost-effectiveness, this valuable species continues to be adopted globally for experimental purposes ranging from ecology to cancer research. Medaka: Biology, Management, and Experimental Protocols covers all aspects of Medaka in the laboratory setting ranging from development of colonies to experimental methods in one definitive text.

Medaka: Biology, Management, and Experimental Protocols uses opening chapters on basic biology and reproduction as a foundation for subsequent chapters discussing the latest in cutting edge research. The text approaches topics such as breeding, morphology, toxicology, and experimental design with practical information and well-illustrated examples from a variety of contexts. A DVD accompanies the full-color text with useful charts and tables, additional images, and video clips from the laboratory setting.

A must-have title for fish biologists and research personnel, Medaka: Biology, Management, and Experimental Protocols is an invaluable reference to scientistsjust beginning to adopt the species as well as established labs.

Key Features:

  • comprehensive reference on a model fish species of growing importance
  • written and reviewed by leading Medaka researchers
  • well-illustrated with full color images DVD with additional illustrations and video demonstrations of research protocol
