This is a collaborative effort by various authors. Assay methods for the vertebrate hormones are considered in detail, with a short account of the statistical methods necessary for proper analysis. Purely qualitative tests are omitted, with the chief emphasis being placed on the quantitative tests that give an estimate of the amount of hormone present. This is an extremely valuable treatise for biochemists and endocrinologists interested in hormone assay, since it includes all the important biologic and chemical tests used, and, in addition, presents a satisfactorily complete bibliography.
