This publication offers a complete and up to date account of the data to be had at the morphological, physiological and evolutionary facets of specialised cells dispensed in the epithelia of the airlines within the vertebrates. loads of paintings has been performed at the mobilephone and molecular biology of those cells that are considered as as oxygen receptor neuroepithelial cells. those chemoreceptors that have been conserved all through evolution have neuroendocrine services wearing their indications to the vital fearful system.

The chemoreceptor cells are sensors which notice the sign adjustments within the exterior and inner environments, and play a key function within the survival of assorted species. reviews addressed to the chemoreceptor phone platforms within the airlines are of significant significance for investigating their reaction to adjustments within the oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations within the surroundings because the way forward for the planet earth is being threatened by way of international warming and weather change.

Praise for the book:

…This quantity will be of specific curiosity to researchers who're all for the evolution of vertebrate respiration regulate generally and the legislation of air flow in nonmammalian vertebrates particularly. ―Wayne L. Silver, Wake wooded area collage, in The Quarterly evaluation of Biology, quantity eighty five, quantity 2

It has been found to occur in catfishes (Siluroidei) alone and there is much in common between carotid labyrinth of fish and amphibian in points of basic structure, topography and innervation. The structure, homology and functions are discussed in detail. The presence of peculiar paraneuronal cells in close vicinity of carotid labyrinth is a significant feature. The fish carotid labyrinth and associated pseudobranchial neurosecretory system, comprising of paraneuronal cells have been described to throw light on the possible function of these structures in the biology of these fishes.
