*Older literature referred to zebrafish as Brachydanio rerio. Recent
work (Meyer et al., Proc. Roy. Soc. Lond252:231-236, 1993) and a consensus vote at the 1993 Zebrafish
Meeting at the Cold Spring Harbor
Laboratory suggest that Danio rerio should now be used.
This book is dedicated to the late George Streisinger
who first began the study of zebrafish in Eugene and
whose insight and gentle support got us all started.
