Chester A. Glomski is professor of anatomy at the State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNYAB) School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Glomski earned his PhD from the University of Minnesota and his MD from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. His research interests include experimental, morphologic, and comparative hematology and the effects of low-dose X-irradiation on hemopoiesis. Dr. Glomski has received a number of awards, including the Alan J. Gross Award for Excellence in Teaching (2011). Alessandra Pica is an associate professor of hematology in the Department of Biology at the University of Naples (Federico II, Italy). She previously was a consulting hematologist for the Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Program of Zoological Station in Naples Anton Dohrn. Pica has taught a number of courses, some of which include human anatomy, embryology, and experimental morphology; hematology and hemopathology of sea turtles; and hemopathology of sea water vertebrates. She received her bachelor of science degree from the University of Naples and is a member of several scientific organizations. Jessica F. Greene received a PhD in pharmacology and toxicology from the University of California at Davis, and undergraduate degrees from The Evergreen State College (Olympia, Washington).

Erythrocytes of the Rhesus and Cynomolgus Monkeys is a text that addresses the morphologic, quantitative, and generative aspects of erythrocytes of the rhesus monkeyã Macaca mulattaã and the cynomolgus monkeyã Macaca fascicularisã (long-tailed macaque, crab-eating monkey). These two species are the most commonly selected nonhuman primates for biomedical scientific investigations. ... The book includes many useful tables, drawings and images to illustrate important concepts in erythrocyte science. It also includes a useful meta-analysis of normative ranges in tables toward the end of the book. These tables are organized by species and include the references from which the erythrocyte data ranges are extracted. ... Overall, the text does provide a valuable reference and resource for non-human primate scientists and veterinarians. I would recommend this book especially for investigators who study erythrocyte biology and diseases of red blood cells.
