Featuring eleven expert reviews, this publication presents a useful and concise overview of ageing phenomena in cold-blooded vertebrates. In contrast to earlier publications in which the emphasis is on one particular class, it presents a broad range of topics on all the three classes; pisces, amphibia and reptilia. Exclusive features include a comprehensive survey of three interrelated phenomena such as age determination and longevity, and growth and ageing for each of the three classes. Pertinent data concerning the anatomical, physiological and biochemical aspects of ageing is included. The reviews provide an objective assessment of the salient features of ageing in cold-blooded vertebrates with an emphasis on the comparison of basic mechanisms with those of mammals and on the controversial issues that confront research on ageing. A valuable single source of information, this publication will interest zoologists, physiologists, biochemists and gerontologists.
