"...the book is an excellent mixture of current methods and trends in molecular biology using aquatic organisms" Duane R. Schultz, Bulletin of Marine Science "...this short collection of selcted topics provides a substantial review of this field of scientific endeavor...these presentations, covering important methods and specific aquatic animal models, will be most appreciated by individuals not directly associated with this active research area. Each of the contributors has provided a focused summary of the important data and questions that are of concern within each of these areas of gene expression." John P. Harrington, Estuaries
