This report presents in tabular form standard values in blood for man and other vertebrates. These are arranged under the following sections: physical properties; coagulation phenomena; blood groups; erythrocytes and hemoglobin; leukocytes; blood and bone marrow cells; water; carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins; amino acids and nonprotein nitrogen compounds; phosphorus and sulfur compounds; vitamins, hormones, and enzymes; electrolytes, minerals, gases, and acid-base values; effects of radiation and storage; effective blood levels of therapeutic agents.

These very comprehensive data are supplemented with essential information on nomenclature, units, methods and conditions of measurements, investigated strains, and theories. An extensive bibliography using a special reference system is appended which also contains the name of the contributor for each value.
