Academic Press, 1984. 24cm. Pp.xiv,410. Photos, figures, tables. Hardbound, jacket, clean secondhand.

Fish Reproduction, Strategies and Tactics presents a series of articles covering aspects of theoretical modelling, ecology, behaviour and experimental laboratory studies and deals with some of the more commercially important aspects of fish reproduction with respect to aquaculture and fisheries biology. Special reference is given to the adaptive significance of reproductive patterns observed in teleost fishes.

0813823862 / 9780813823867 New
2015. 26cm. Pp.296. Hardbound.

Fish Pheromones and Related Cues opens with a useful overview of fish pheromone research. Chapters then examine the biological importance of pheromones in inter- and intraspecies communication, and the role these chemical cues play in a variety biological functions from reproduction to predation. The final chapters provide valuable insight into how pheromones are being applied in real-world efforts to culture fish species and to conserve our wild-borne populations from pollutants and invasive species.

2011. 28cm. Pp.573. Hardbound.

Written as a stand-alone textbook for students and a useful reference for professionals in government and private agencies, academic institutions, and consultants, Ecology and Conservation of Fishes provides broad, comprehensive, and systematic coverage of all aquatic systems from the mountains to the oceans.

The book begins with overview discussions on the ecology, evolution, and diversity of fishes. It moves on to address freshwater, estuarine, and marine ecosystems and identifies factors that affect the distribution and abundance of fishes. It then examines the adaptations of fishes as a response to constraints posed in ecosystems. The book concludes with four chapters on applied ecology to discuss the critical issues of management, conservation, biodiversity crises, and climate change.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes, Wootton, Robert J & Carl Smith

0632054263 / 9780632054268 New
2014. 26cm. Pp.496. Hardbound.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes is the first integrated review of the reproductive biology of the bony fishes, which are the most species-rich and diversified group of vertebrates.

Teleosts display remarkable variation in their modes of reproduction, and this volume is intended to provide a framework for understanding the remarkable reproductive diversity of this group. It describes their reproductive biology using, wherever possible, phylogenetic analyses and life-history theory as a means to interpret the information. The book addresses the genetic, physiological, behavioural, ecological, evolutionary and applied aspects of teleost reproduction in a comparative framework that emphasises the adaptive basis of reproductive diversity.

Reproductive Biology of Teleost Fishes provides a comprehensive synthesis of fish reproduction that will be of great interest to life scientists, particularly ecologists, evolutionary biologists, physiologists and advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and research workers requiring a comprehensive overview of fish reproduction. The book is suitable for courses in fish biology and ecology, reproductive physiology and reproductive genetics. It also addresses applied questions and will be of value for courses on fisheries science and aquaculture. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological sciences, fisheries science and aquaculture are studied and taught should have several copies of this important book on their shelves.
