Introduction

 

Rodents, non-human primates, dogs, cats, and farm animals have long been the preferred animal models in biomedical research. their behavioral repertoire and physiological responses to stimuli are more similar to human systems than are lower organisms. However, as amphibians, fish and reptiles become better understood in the field and laboratory, their advantages as alternative animal models are being revealed.

While there are about 4,000 known species of mammals, there are over 4,000 species of amphibian, 6,000 species of reptiles, and more than 20,000 species of fish. Such diversity allows for a wide range of research on specific organs, tissues, and systems that are similar in function, but often less complex than in mammals. Due to differential rates of ova maturation and numbers of gametes produced, elasmobranchs (sharks, skates, rays) are used to study fetal nutrition and toxicology as well as gametogenesis. The monkfish is an important insulin resource for researchers since it contains 20 to 40 times more insulin-producing tissue than the laboratory rat.

Reptiles and amphibians contribute to studies in genetics, embryology, developmental biology, ethology, endocrinology, and immunology. Salamanders and newts are models for limb regeneration. Fetal heart cells of the axolotl (Mexican salamander) will divide and beat in vitro. Frogs have played a major role in the development of communication theory. The common anole lizard is used in behavioral studies and can be induced to produce the symptoms of Parkinson=s disease. Typical reptile and amphibian studies include aggression, stress physiology, reproductive cycles and dysfunction, and the effects of neurotoxins.

In contrast to mammals and birds which are endothermic (their body temperature is regulated and maintained internally), reptiles, amphibians, and fish are ectothermic with body temperature primarily regulated by ambient temperatures. Since metabolism is driven by body temperature, the rate of normal body functions in these species may be artificially increased or decreased. Thus endocrine, immunological, inflammation, cell physiology, and many other pathways can be easily manipulated.

A major concern to those who might use these species is the necessity of providing a suitable laboratory environment. Unlike mammals and birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish require very specific micro environments. For reptiles and amphibians, basking sites, water source and water temperature, relative humidity, photo period and type of lighting, ambient temperature, group density, cover, method of food preparation and presentation are all factors that influence whether or not the animals will function normally in the laboratory. Fish live in a totally aqueous environment. Type of water (fresh, salt, brackish), pH, salinity, school density, cover, dissolved oxygen, lighting, and filtration are necessary considerations that require monitoring. The animal=s needs are often species-specific and failure to meet them results in stress-induced diseases, low growth rate, poor feed efficiency, cannibalism, and failure to reproduce.

Information Resources on Amphibians, Fish & Reptiles Used in Biomedical Research is an attempt to collect in a single volume much of the current information regarding the care and use of these alternative animal models. It is intended only as an introduction to these species as comprehensive coverage would fill several volumes. The authors have selected sample articles that typify recent research. Each animal group has a section of articles and books pertaining to its use in biomedical research followed by a section on its care and use. The latter section highlights not only husbandry and maintenance of particular species, but also regulations, guidelines, and veterinary aspects such as appropriate anesthesia or euthanasia. Because several citations cross phyla, general sections are provided. A final section provides information resources with names and addresses of organizations and their publications that can provide further information. If the citation can be found at the National Agricultural Library (NAL), its call number is given. Information on how to request materials that are included in the collection of the National Agricultural Library (NAL) may be found on the Collection Services website at http://www.nal.usda.gov/borrow-materials. Please read carefully as there are certain restrictions on media and document types.
