  • Fish Cognition and Behaviorby Culum Brown; Kevin Laland; Jens Krause

    Wiley 2008; US$ 250.00 US$ 216.67

    The study of animal cognition has been largely confined to birds and mammals; a historical bias which has led to the belief that learning plays little or no part in the development of behaviour in fishes and reptiles. Research in recent decades has begun to redress this misconception and it is now recognised that fishes exhibit a rich array of sophisticated... more...

  • Fishes in Estuariesby M. Elliott; Krystal L. Hemingway

    Wiley 2008; US$ 328.95 US$ 285.09

    This landmark publication collates information and studies on the use of estuaries, and specific habitats within them, as nursery, feeding and refuge areas, and migration routes of marine and other fish, many of which are of commercial and conservation importance. The editors and authors of the book have carefully compiled a huge wealth of information... more...

  • Handbook of Fish Biology and Fisheriesby Paul J. B. Hart; John D. Reynolds

    Wiley 2008; US$ 259.00 US$ 224.47

    Recent decades have witnessed strong declines in fish stocks around the globe, amid growing concerns about the impact of fisheries on marine and freshwater biodiversity. Fisheries biologists and managers are therefore increasingly asking about aspects of ecology, behaviour, evolution and biodiversity that were traditionally studied by people working... more...

  • Migration of Freshwater Fishesby Martyn Lucas; Etienne Baras

    Wiley 2008; US$ 296.95 US$ 257.36

    Recent studies have increasingly demonstrated the widespread existence of spatio-temporal variations in the abundance and distribution of species of freshwater fishes, previously assumed not to move between habitats. These movements are often on a seasonal or ontogenetic basis, for spawning, feeding and refuge, and in many cases are fundamental for... more...

  • Salmonid Fishesby Yuri P. Altukhov; Elena A. Salmenkova; Vladimir T. Omelchenko

    Wiley 2008; US$ 317.95 US$ 275.56

    This important title encompasses features of genetic processes in complexly organised population systems of salmonids, one of the most commercially valuable families of fish worldwide. Translated from the original work in Russian, the authors have taken the opportunity to update and revise the work, much of it appearing in the English language for... more...

  • Sea Troutby Graeme Harris; Nigel Milner

    Wiley 2008; US$ 284.95 US$ 246.96

    The Brown trout displays widely divergent life history strategies involving, variously, usage of streams, rivers, lakes, estuaries and the sea. The sea trout is the full sea-going form, it is very common and competes with salmon for the position of the most sought after migratory salmonid in many countries. Its use of freshwater, estuaries and coastal... more...

  • Reproductive Biology and Early Life History of Fishes in the Ohio River Drainageby Robert Wallus; Thomas P. Simon

    CRC Press 2008; US$ 188.95

    This seven-volume series is the most extensive treatise on early life histories of the freshwater fishes of North America. It represents the state-of-the-art in fishery biology and provides a systematic approach to the study of early life histories of all the fishes in this region. Each volume contains distinguishing characteristics and a pictorial... more...

  • Fish Bioacousticsby Jacqueline F. Webb; Richard R Fay; Arthur N. Popper

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 137.44

    The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of comprehensive and synthetic reviews of the fundamental topics in modern auditory research. The volumes are aimed at all individuals with interests in hearing research including advanced graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and clinical investigators. The volumes are intended to... more...

  • Fish and Diadromy in Europe (ecology, management, conservation)by Sylvie Dufour; Etienne Prevost; Eric Rochard; Patrick Williot

    Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 179.73

    This book contains papers from an international symposium organized by the Diadfish network held in Bordeaux, France in 2005. It features information on the ecology, ecotoxicology and physiology of several diadromous species and this whole group in Europe. more...

  • Fish Histologyby Donald B. McMillan

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 294.99

    Fish including cyclostomes, elasmobranchs, and teleosts display a wide variety of ways of coping with the stringent conditions they encounter in the aquatic environment. This diversity is especially evident in the female genital systems where some fish spawn profligate numbers of small eggs while others develop a few yolky eggs that may receive parental... more...
