This book represents an attempt to assemble widely scattered information relating to the mouse on reproduction and embryology, genetics, histology, neoplasms, endocrinology, parasitology and bacteriology. Accordingly the thirteen chapters discuss the early embryology of the mouse, reproduction, histology, spontaneous neoplasms in the mouse, gene and chromosome mutations, the genetics of spontaneous tumor formation, the genetics of tumor transplantation, endocrine secretion, the milk influence in tumor formation, inbred and hybrid animals and their value in research, parasites, infectious diseases in mice, care and recording. Several authors have combined their efforts to produce the book, each being responsible for one or more chapters. These authors, who are from the Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, with the exception of J. H. Dingle from Harvard Medical School, are C. C. Little, G. D. Snell, J. J. Bittner, A. M. Cloudman, E. Fekete, W. E. Heston, W. L. Russell and G. W.
