- A comprehensive monograph exploring the evolutionary relationship of the avian erythrocyte with the erythrocytes of the antecedent lower vertebrates and the subsequent mammalians
- Presents comprehensive tabular erythrocytic taxonomically organized data
- Designed for veterinarians and pathologists
The erythrocyte presents morphologic, cytochemical, and quantitative adaptations as it progresses through its evolutionary continuum. This text is a comprehensive exploration of the evolutionary relationship of the avian erythrocyte with the erythrocytes of the antecedent lower vertebrates—such as amphibians and reptiles—as well as mammalians. It also presents tabular erythrocytic taxonomically organized data which provide an essential reference source.
