Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This portable (6x9") plastic-comb bound manual on using the South African clawed frog in the research laboratory covers the frogs' care, housing, and husbandry. It is intended as a concise reference for laboratory animal veterinarians, research scientists, technicians, and animal caretakers. Chapters cover important biological features, husbandry, management, veterinary care, and experimental methodology. An entire chapter of resources lists organizations, electronic resources, periodicals, books, and vendors of frogs, food, and supplies, plus web resources for more information on topics such as anatomy and histology, ontogeny, and genetics. Color and b&w photos and b&w illustrations are included on almost every page. Green is director of the Stanford University Veterinary Service Center.

Synopsis:

Even though Xenopus is one of the two most popular non-mammalian animals used in biomedical research, its value in the lab suffers from a lack of standardization regarding their optimal care, breeding, and housing.

Filling the need for such a reference, The Laboratory Xenopus sp provides researchers and lab managers with a practical, step-by-step manual that emphasizes the humane care and use of captive clawed frogs in basic as well as biomedical, and toxicological research.

The Only Book of Its Kind Available to Researchers

Amply illustrated with 50 color illustrations of management practices and technical procedures, this how-to guide:

  • Offers quick reference on the humane care and use of clawed frogs in the laboratory
  • Illustrates management practices and technical procedures with figures and tables
  • Provides sources of additional information on frogs, feed, and sanitation supplies

Supported with hypothesis-driven research, this well-organized manual explores the full range of responsibilities facing individuals who work with this species. The content is divided into intentionally brief sections that allow for the quick retrieval of essential information regarding important biological features and experimental methodology, as well as compliance and veterinary care, husbandry, housing, and water quality management. The book has an accompanying website with more information, including interesting frog trivia.
