On August 21-26, 1977, two symposia were included in the program of the 10th Annual Meeting of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology held at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan. One was entitled "Invertebrate Models for Biomedical Research" organized by Dr. Thomas C. Cheng, and the second, organized by Dr. Robert S. Anderson, was entitled "Cellular and Humoral Reactions to Disease by Invertebrate Animals." When the final manuscripts of the speakers were received, it became apparent that all of the papers were so closely related that the editors decided that they should be combined and published in a single volume of Comparative Pathobiology under the subtitle of Invertebrate Models for Biomedical Research. This volume is the result. We hope that volume four will provide the reader further insight into the complexity and comprehensiveness of pathobiology. Pathobiology encompasses not only the study of pathologic conditions but also the biology of causative agents and response reactions.

This book provides essential knowledge and informa-tion required to adequately assess useful alternatives from among the lower vertebrates and the invertebrates. This volume highlights unfamiliar and underde-veloped organisms that have the potential to become very satisfactory surrogates for biomedical research. A practical guide aimed at disseminating information to researchers about new models, this work provides compara-tive biomedical studies at many levels of the phyloge-netic ladder.

At a recent meeting of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology, Dr. K. Kanungo of Western Connecticut State University organized a special symposium on the topic of invertebrate circulatory systems with emphasis on hemocytes and their role in internal defense. The contents of this volume of Comparative Pathobiology represent the proceedings of that gathering. As the Editor of the Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, I am intimately aware of the current popularity of research pertaining to invertebrate immune mechanisms of which hemocytes and associated molecules play a central role. Consequently, the contributions in cluded herein should prove to be of interest to a variety of investi gators including invertebrate zoologists, comparative immunolo gists, physiologists, and cell biologists. As has been stated in previous volumes of this series, Comparative Pathobiology is meant for the publication of proceedings of symposia devoted to some aspect of that broad spectrum of modern biology known as pathobiology. Those interested in having antici pated contributions considered for publication should contact me.

The study of parasites and their interactions with hosts continues to represent a challenging area of modern biology. The availability of new techniques and instrumentation, coupled with the development of daring new hypotheses and concepts, has paved the way for the dramatic evolution of parasitology from a static descriptive endeavor to a dynamic one based on biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, and modern cell biology. Studies of this nature obviously fall within the domain of pathobiology. Consequently, when the contributions included in this volume of Comparative PathobioZogy were offered to this series. after critical review, we welcomed the opportunity to make them available to the scientific community. The contributions included herein represent presentations delivered before enthusiastic audiences at three different symposia, all held in 1983. The first, entitled "Some Aspects of Modern Parasitology", was organized by Dr. Gary E. Rodrick of the University of South Florida and myself on behalf of the American Society of Zoologists. The chapters by C. E. Carter and B. M. Wickwire. B. J. Bogitsh, and W. M. Kemp were originally presented at that symposium. The second symposium. organized by Dr. G. Balouet of the Faculte de Medecine, Brest, France, and myself on behalf,of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology, was entitled "Cellular Reactions in Invertebrates." The chapters by G. Balouet and M. Poder and M. Brehelin were originally presented at this symposium.

The publication is the third in a series designed to present abstracts or summaries of selected papers focusing on research utilizing animal models. The majority of abstracts in this volume appeared in biomedical literature during 1972, although some entries date from late 1971 or early 1973. This edition of Selected Abstracts also contains an appendix featuring a list of 201 references relating to animal models for cardiovascular research (p. 49). Selected Abstracts on Animal Models for Biomedical Research is a publication of the Animal Models and Genetic Stocks Program, an information exchange service conducted by ILAR. The program informs the biomedical community of the various animal models available and assists investigators in selecting and locating particular strains or stocks.
