Interest in osmoionic relations of vertebrates increased during the 1960s, with a resulting outpouring of literature. P. J. Bentley provides an able review of this literature, as well as a comprehensive statement of the endocrine control of osmoregulation in vertebrates. The book is written for the physiologist but includes wider aspects of biology; evolutionary, ecological, and zoo-geographical aspects are discussed where germane. In the preface the author states his intention of showing young workers the breadth of studies with animals, and in the text he implements this by frequently noting problem areas in which future research would be fruitful.
