Provides a thorough introduction to the biology of fishes, covering basic diversity, biology and physiology. Detailed coverage of environmental aspects relating to fish biology is a key feature of this book which will be of great use to students and individuals in fish biology, fisheries, aquaculture and environmental sciences.
A text for an undergraduate course in fish biology for students in zoology, biology, or aquatic biosciences. Integrates physiology and behavior into an examination of how fish relate to external stimuli, thus filling a gap between the isolated systems approach of most introductory texts and the anecdotal informality of popular books. Addresses such concerns as over-fishing, pollution, biodiversity, and possible impacts of increasing aquaculture. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
