263 Mattson, Niklas S., Kongpheng Buakhamvongsa, Naruepon Sukumasavin, Nguyen Tuan, and Ouk Vibol Mekong Giant Fish Species : Their Management and Biology
New
 
2002-2005. 2 volumes. 26cm. Pp.31 ; 8. Colour photos, figures, tables, bibliography. Binding : ebook / PDF, 1.072MB ; system requirements Acrobat 7 or above, Windows XP or above.

The IUCN Red List of threatened species includes two of the five giant Mekong species, Pangasianodon gigas (Mekong giant catfish) and Probarbus jullieni (Jullien’s golden carp or seven-striped barb), in the ‘endangered’ class. Two other listed species (Probarbus labeamajor and Probarbus labeaminor) are classified as ‘data deficient’. Although it is not on the IUCN list, the other giant species, Catlocarpio siamensis (Siamese giant barb), is now found rarely in the Mekong. These papers present a summary review of what is known about the biology and ecology of these species, and provide data on their habitats, migration, reproductive biology and life cycles and the results of experiments on artificial breeding.

Guide détermination des poissons du bassin inférieur de l'Ogooué is a systematic guide to the identification of the fishes of the lower Ogooué Basin, Gabon, tropical west Africa. French text.

La publication de ce guide vise d'abord à actualiser les connaissances sur la faune ichtyologique du bassin inférieur de l'Ogooué, elle s'appuie sur les résultats d'un inventaire complet de sa faune ichtyologique réalisé entre septembre 2000 et janvier 2002 ; inventaire qui a été complété par l'examen des collections de poissons (provenant de la région) conservées dans des musées européens et de tous les travaux scientifiques qui ont été réalisés sur la faune ichtyologique de cette région.

Cet ouvrage qui compte 139 espèces regroupées en 44 familles et 84 genres s'adresse en premier lieu aux gestionnaires de la pêche et constitue un outil de base utile et insdispensable à une gestion efficace des ressources halieutiques de la région. Il vise également à sensibiliser l'opinion publique gabonaise, les pouvoirs publics et les ONG qui travaillent dans le domaine de la conservation de la nature et de la biodiversité.

Euryhaline Fishes, McCormick, S.D; A.P. Farrell & C.J. Brauner (editors)
267 McCormick, S.D; A.P. Farrell & C.J. Brauner (editors) Euryhaline Fishes
0123969514 / 9780123969514 New
 
2013. 25cm. Pp.572. Hardbound.

Some fishes are capable of life in both freshwater and seawater. These euryhaline fishes constitute an estimated 3 to 5% of all fish species. Euryhaline fishes represent some of the most iconic and interesting of all fish species, from salmon and sturgeon that make epic migrations to intertidal mudskippers that contend with daily salinity changes. With the advent of global climate change and increasing sea levels, understanding the environmental physiology of euryhaline species is critical for environmental management and any mitigative measures. This volume will provide the first integrative review of euryhalinity in fish. There is no other book that focuses on fish that have the capacity to move between freshwater and seawater. The different challenges of salt and water balance in different habitats have led to different physiological controls and regulation, which heretofore has not been reviewed in a single volume.

2010. 28cm. Pp.xxi,449. Hardbound.

Current synthesis of taxonomic and ecological information on New Zealand’s freshwater fish fauna.

One of the key elements for understanding the origins and derivations of this fish fauna is that in all groups some or all of the species are diadromous, customarily spending a significant phase of their lives at sea. The distribution patterns reflect these changing habits, with diadromous species being broadly distributed but tending to be lowland in range, whereas the derived, non-diadromous species have narrower ranges, but are often found further inland and at high elevations. This book provides an ecological and historical synthesis of these divergent patterns across New Zealand’s geography and history.

1402054157 / 9781402054150 New
 
2007. 26cm. Pp.210. 835 photos & figures (some colour). Hardbound.

Fish Histology describes the myriad ways in which fish have approached problems of reproduction — it is an amply illustrated comparative study of the microscopic structure of the female genital systems of fish. It is a compilation of thousands of micrographs — mostly electron micrographs — from classic works in the field and should prove valuable to investigators studying fish in areas such as ecology, physiology, and reproductive biology who may view histology as essential in their work but have little background in this area. It includes chapters on the origin of genital systems, the structure of ovarian follicles, mechanisms of ovulation, the cortical reaction, oviducts, oviparity, and amazing examples of viviparity.

Freshwater Fishes of Mexico, Miller, Robert Rush
277 Miller, Robert Rush Freshwater Fishes of Mexico
0226526046 / 9780226526041 New
 
2006. 28cm. Pp.652. 96 colour plates, 314 BW photos, 233 figures, 509 maps, 8 tables. Hardbound.

Though Mexico is only one-fifth the size of the continental United States, it is home to nearly two-thirds as many freshwater fishes as those that swim the waters of the United States and Canada combined. Mexico's diverse freshwater fauna can be attributed to the country's highly varied physical geography, a wide latitudinal range, the largest river system in middle America, and, ironically, its oceans--many marine groups left the brine for the inland springs and never returned to the sea. No one knew these Mexican freshwaters or the fish that inhabit them better than the late world-renowned ichthyologist Robert Rush Miller.

A pioneer of the field, Miller undertook his first field excursion more than fifty years ago and, in the decades following, amassed the information necessary to write the first encyclopedia of Mexican inland ichthyology.

Providing keys to more than 500 native species, accompanied by detailed distribution maps and illustrations, Freshwater Fishes of Mexico offers a historical overview of the country's ichthyology, as well as syntheses of the unique biogeography of Mexican fishes and their current conservation status. Organized by family, the species accounts are supplemented with colour galleries containing photographs of live fishes in their native environments and natural habitats.

Exploring ecological, biological, and taxonomic issues, the book also considers the evolutionary history of the ichthyofauna itself and the human history of the scientists who researched it during the last several centuries. The life's work of Robert Rush Miller.

285 Muller, Michael ; Philippe Cousteau, Jr., Dr. Alison Kock & Arty Nelson Sharks. Face-to-Face with the Ocean’s Endangered Predator
3836553597 / 9783836553599 New
 
2016. 37cm. Pp.334. Numerous full colour photos, 2 fold-outs. Hardbound.

Michael Muller has carved a career out of impressive encounters. Famed for his portraits of the world’s most elite actors, musicians, and sports stars, he has in the last decade built up one of the most spectacular portfolios of underwater shark photography.

Muller’s quest has been to document sharks with an unprecedented proximity and precision, bringing the Hollywood portrait session to the ocean predator. In ocean depths around the world, he approaches the sharks with a patented seven-bulb, 1200-watt plexi-encased strobe lighting rig, developed with NASA engineering, and often no cage.

This collection of Muller’s images, including the first-known photograph of a great white breaching at night, is a catalogue of adrenalin and awe. Arranged geographically, it follows Muller’s ocean adventures from Black tip and Sand Tiger sharks in South Africa to great Hammerheads in the Bahamas, with thrilling narratives from each trip documenting the challenges and near-misses along the way.

To compliment Muller’s work for advocacy organizations such as WildAid and EarthEcho, the images are contextualized with essays from Philippe Cousteau, Jr. and marine biologist Alison Kock, who discuss exploration and conservation of our oceanic kingdom. Culture writer Arty Nelson adds an overview of Muller’s work, while a technical section explains the precise equipment behind these spectacular shots. Together, these insightful texts and awesome images offer a record of breathtaking photographic feats, a tribute to the beauty and might of the shark, and a rallying cry for its fragile future.
