Summary In the past 20 years, fish cytogenetics has become an essential tool in fields as diverse as systematics and evolution, conservation, aquaculture and more recently, genomics. This book is organized in four sections (systematics and evolution; biodiversity conservation; stock assessment and aquaculture; genomics) covering the major fields of present fish cytogenetic research. The eighteen contributions from thirteen countries which make up this book, provide a comprehensive picture of the ongoing research around the world. Due to the diversified arrays of themes approached, including speciation and evolution, biodiversity and conservation and genomics, the book is addressed not only to specialists in cytogenetics but to all scientists interested in fish biology
