Vertebrate biologists in various specialties from across five continents synthesize the current scientific understanding of the specialized cells distributed within the epithelia lining the air-conducting structures of air-breathing species, or in the gills of fish. The sections focus in turn on fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds, and mammals. Specific topics include the cytology and innervation of serotonergic neuro-epithelial cells in fish gills, the neuro-endocrine system of the amphibian extra-pulmonary airways, mechanisms for sensing carbon dioxide in avian intra-pulmonary chemoreceptors, precursors and stem cells of the pulmonary neuro-endocrine cell system in the developing mammalian lung, and the phylogeny and ontogeny of solitary chemosensory cells in mammals.
