  • Fish Locomotionby Paolo Domenici

    Science Publishers 2010; US$ 146.95

    Fish accomplish most of their basic behaviors by swimming. Swimming is fundamental in a vast majority of fish species for avoiding predation, feeding, finding food, mating, migrating and finding optimal physical environments. Fish exhibit a wide variety of swimming patterns and behaviors. This treatise looks at fish swimming from the behavioral and... more...

  • The Biology of Gobiesby Robert Patzner; James L. Van Tassell; Marcelo Kovacic; B. G. Kapoor

    Science Publishers 2011; US$ 146.95

    Among all vertebrates, gobies are second in diversity only to the teleost family Cyprinidae. The Gobiidae consists of more than 200 genera and nearly 2,000 species and make up the largest family of marine fishes. Gobies account for as much as 50% of the energy flow in coral reef communities. Their small size, ability to adapt to numerous ecological... more...

  • The Reef: A Passionate History: The Great Barrier Reef from Captain Cook to Climate Changeby Iain McCalman

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 27.99

    Stretching 1,400 miles along the Australian coast and visible from space, the Great Barrier Reef is home to three thousand individual reefs, more than nine hundred islands, and thousands of marine species, and has alternately been viewed as a deadly maze, an economic bounty, a scientific frontier, and a precarious World Heritage site. Now the historian... more...

  • Marine Biodiversity, Climatic Variability and Global Changeby Grégory Beaugrand

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 79.95

    Biodiversity loss in terrestrial environments associated with human activities has been appreciated as a major issue for some years now. What is less well documented is the effect of such activities, including climate change, on marine biodiversity. This pioneering book is the first to address this important but neglected topic, which is likely to... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 283.00

    Providing a synthesis of basic and applied research, The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook takes an encyclopedic look at how to study and manage ecosystems connected by surface and subsurface water movements. The book examines the South Florida hydroscape, a series of ecosystems linked by hydrology... more...

  • Handbook for Restoring Tidal Wetlandsby Joy B. Zedler

    Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 146.95

    Efforts to direct the recovery of damaged sites and landscape date back as far as the 1930s. If we fully understood the conditions and controlling variables at restoration sites, we would be better equipped to predict the outcomes of restoration efforts. If there were no constraints, we could merely plant the restoration site and walk away. However,... more...

  • Artificial Reef Evaluationby William Seaman

    Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 164.95

    Beneath the coastal waters of the world lie thousands of artificial reefs. Some are old and retired freighters and ships that once plied the oceans of the world but now serve as habitats for marine life. Others are newer reefs that have been designed and built for specific applications. With the field of aquatic habitat technology continually growing,... more...

  • Ascorbic Acid In Aquatic Organismsby Konrad Dabrowski

    Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 262.00

    We are just beginning to discover the importance of vitamin C in the health of natural and man-made ecosystems. Synthesis of ascorbic acid is well understood, but algae as the only source of ascorbate in the aquatic food pyramid has not been explored. There is an expanding field of the culture of aquatic organisms that demand formulated feeds to best... more...
