203 Desai, V. R Synopsis of Biological Data on the Tor Maseer Tor tor (Hamilton, 1822)
9251049335 New
2003. 30cm. Pp.43. 19 figures & maps, 20 tables. Binding : ebook.

Among Indian mahseers, Tor mahseer Tor tor (Hamilton, 1822) is the most important food and game fish of India after Tor putitora (Hamilton, 1822). It constitutes an outstanding fishery in the Narmada River in central India. It has also settled in some Indian reservoirs which have been stocked with this fish. However, the building of dams across certain rivers has created reservoirs that have destroyed the natural breeding grounds of the fish and caused mortality of brood and juvenile fish indiscriminately. The mahseer fishery of India is further declining as a result of low recruitment of the fish. Stocking rivers and reservoirs with mahseer is therefore essential to restore the fishery. This synopsis is the compilation of biological data for Tor tor – Tor mahseer collected from different sources. The detailed biological information on Tor tor, including the feeding habits, breeding and growth patterns contained in this synopsis, will be useful in planning the development of the mahseer fishery in India. ebook / pdf 845KB ; system requirements Acrobat 7 or above, Windows XP or above.

208 Diogo, R Morphological Evolution, Adaptations, Homoplasies, Constraints, and Evolutionary Trends: Catfishes as a Case Study on General Phylogeny & Macroevolution
1578082919 New
2004. 26cm. Pp.600. Hardbound.

The major aim of this work is, to help clarify the interrelationships of catfishes, with major implications on the study of the general evolution of these fishes.

A great part of this work, therefore, deals with a cladistic analysis of catfish higher-level phylogeny based on extensive morphological data, in which are included some terminal taxa not included in previous analyses, but principally a large number of characters traditionally excluded from those analyses, with particular attention being given to catfish morphology.

This analysis gives particular importance to complex, integrated structures. Morphological Evolution, Adaptations, Homoplasies, Constraints, and Evolutionary Trends will be interest to students, ichthyologists and biologists working in evolution, taxonomy and phylogeny.

213 Dolan, John R; David J. S. Montagnes, Sabine Agatha, D. Wayne Coats & Diane K. Stoecker (editors) The Biology and Ecology of Tintinnid Ciliates: Models for Marine Plankton
0470671513 New
2012. 26cm. Pp.344. Hardbound

Planktonic protists both produce and consume most of the primary production in the world ocean. They not only play key roles in the oceans but also represent an astounding amount of diversity: ecological morphological and genetic. However, for most taxa their ecology, morphology, phylogeny and biogeography are either poorly known or appear to be largely unrelated to one another; this hinders our understanding of their biology as well as interpretation of emerging genetic data.

Tintinnid ciliates represent a singular exception. Compared to nearly all other groups of planktonic protists, there is a very substantial and relatively detailed literature (both modern and historical) on tintinnids.

The Biology and Ecology of Tintinnid Ciliates synthesizes knowledge concerning a wide variety of topics ranging from anatomy and systematics, physiology, behavior, ecology (including ecological roles, predators, parasites, biogeography, and cysts) to fossil history.

214 Domenici, Paulo (editor) Fish Locomotion: An Eco-ethological Perspective
1578084482 New
2010. 26cm. Pp.549. Hardbound.

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 behaviours.

Fish Locomotion: An Eco-ethological Perspective looks at fish swimming from the behavioral and ecological perspectives rather than from the more traditional biomechanics, ecomorphology and physiological perspectives used in studies of fish swimming. The book is therefore largely integrative by its own nature, and it includes considerations related to fisheries, conservation and evolution. It is aimed at students and researchers interested in fish swimming from any organismal background, be it biomechanics, ecomorphology, physiology, behavior or ecology.

216 Dufour, Sylvie ; Karine Rousseau & B. G. Kapoor Metamorphosis in Fish
1578087139 New
2012. 28cm. Pp.270. Hardbound.

Metamorphosis in Fish gathers current data on the two types of fish metamorphoses and their endocrine controls. It will be of interest for fish biologists as well as comparative physiologists and endocrinologists.

Metamorphosis is a major developmental phase characterized by morphological and physiological changes. It prepares organisms for a drastic shift in habitat and behaviour. Among vertebrates, besides the well-known larval metamorphosis in amphibians, two types of metamorphosis are also described in the life cycle of some fish species.

Larval metamorphosis, also called first metamorphosis or true metamorphosis, is encountered in lampreys, representative species of basal vertebrates as well as in some teleost groups, elopomorphs and pleuronectiforms, and possibly also in some other teleost species. Secondary metamorphosis occurs in juveniles of some diadromic migratory teleosts, such as salmons and eels, and compared to larval metamorphosis, involves less drastic morphological changes.

230 El-Sayed, A.-F.M. (editor) Tilapia Culture
0851990142 New
2006. 26cm. Pp.304. Hardbound.

This book describes, in detail, the principles and practice of tilapia culture. All aspects of the subject are covered, from basic biology, environmental requirements, nutrition and reproduction, to culture in intensive and semi-intensive systems. There is also discussion of stress and diseases, harvesting and marketing of farmed tilapia, the role of tilapia culture in rural development and environmental impact of tilapia culture.

Tilapia are sometimes known as "aquatic chicken", due to their high growth rates, adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions, ability to grow and reproduce in captivity and feed on low trophic levels. As a result, these fishes have become excellent candidates for aquaculture, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Indeed, tilapia culture has been expanding rapidly, and is now practised in more than one hundred countries worldwide.

2011. 28cm. Pp.464. 302 photos & figures. Hardbound.

The Shocking History of Electric Fishes looks at how three kinds of strongly electric fishes literally became "electrical", and how they helped to change the sciences and medicine. These fishes are the flat torpedo rays common to the Mediterranean, the electric catfishes of Africa, and an "eel" from South America. The discovery of the electrical nature of these fishes in the second half of the 18th century was the starting point of the two fundamental advances in the sciences: on the physiological side, the demonstration that nerve conduction and muscle excitation are electrical phenomena, and on the physical side, the invention of the electric battery.

1578083885 New
2008. 26cm. Pp.742. 26 colour photos, figures. Hardbound.

Fish Larval Physiology aims at providing a single-volume treatise that explains how fish larvae develop and differentiate, how they regulate salt, water and acid-base balance, how they transport and exchange gases, acquire and utilise energy, how they sense their environment, and move in their aquatic medium, how they control and defend themselves, and finally how they grow up.

It is intended as a resource for students and researchers interested in developmental biology and physiology and specifically addresses the larval stages of fish. Fish larvae (and fish embryos) are not small juveniles or adults. Rather they are transitionary organisms that bridge the critical gap between the single celled egg and sexually immature juvenile. Fish larvae represent the stage of the life cycle that is used for differentiation, feeding and distribution.

2018. 30cm. Pp.360. Softbound.

Rabies control is a dynamic field, this work compiles the latest knowledge on the subject, and is an invaluable reference source for future developments in the control of rabies in animal reservoirs. The effective application of these strategies, described here, will contribute to making rabies a thing of the past.

Provides scientists, clinicians, veterinarians, policy-makers and stakeholders involved in rabies control with an up-to-date review of the rabies situation worldwide, from a ‘One Health’ perspective. Rabies is one of the most feared known human diseases and the authors claim that substantial developments have been made in recent years in reducing its burden. This publication discusses the global strategies used for the elimination of terrestrial rabies from reservoir populations, focusing on the elimination of dog-mediated rabies. It considers regional strategies for rabies control and also shows how intergovernmental organisations, such as the OIE, the WHO and the FAO, are working together in a collegiate manner to help to fight the disease worldwide. The adoption of effective strategies against rabies is especially important in regions where its control is still neglected and where the disease remains endemic.

277 Glazier, Edward Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management in the Western Pacific
0813821541 New
2011. 26cm. Pp.312. Hardbound

As the ecosystem-based trend in fisheries management continues to be implemented worldwide, a thorough background of this new management approach and resulting implementation strategies is needed.

Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management in the Western Pacific presents a full picture of the process changes used in switching from target species based management to EBFM, using a region that is at the forefront of this widely accepted movement.

Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management in the Western Pacific is the outgrowth of a series of three workshops convened by the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management council. The book follows the logical approach of each workshop, beginning with an assessment of the current state of fisheries management, transitioning through the data sources and modeling systems used to advance EBFM, and ending with practical methodologies for more thorough global implementation in the future.

Contributed by experts from the Pacific regions as well as the UK and Non-pacific States, this book is one of the first available compendiums on this important movement and will be applicable to fisheries scientists and researchers, fisheries managers, policy makers, and social scientists worldwide.

291 Gourreau,J.M ; R. Drolet, G.-P. Martineau, H. Morvan, P.-P. Pastoret, D. Pin & D. W. Scott (editors) Atlas of Porcine Dermatology
9290449845 New
2015. 30cm. Pp.456. Colour photos, figures. Softbound.

This lavishly illustrated Atlas, is the first of its kind and fills a gap in the global veterinary literature. Takes into account all aspects of porcine dermatology (it covers non-infectious diseases and those whose origins are neither parasitic nor fungal), thus facilitating differential diagnosis.

Several of the OIE-listed swine diseases, namely FMD, Aujeszky‘s disease, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, classical swine fever and African swine fever (some of which also affect other species) can result in cutaneous clinical signs in pigs. For many skin ailments clinical signs are crucial for establishing a diagnosis.

English language edition.

292 Grande, Terry (editor) Gonorynchiformes and Ostariophysan Relationships: A Comprehensive Review
1578083745 New
2010. 26cm. Pp.600. Hardbound.

An understanding of gonorynchiform morphology and systematic inter- and intra-relationships has proven vital to a better understanding of the evolution of lower teleosts in general, and more specifically of groups such as the clupeiforms (e.g., herrings and anchovies), and ostariophysans (e.g., carps, minnows and catfishes).

Gonorynchiformes and Ostariophysan Relationships examines the current knowledge of gonorynchiform biology, including comparative osteology, myology, epibranchial morphology and development. Phylogenetic interrelationships among gonorynchiform fishes are reexamined.

298 Green, B.S; B.D. Mapstone, G. Carlos & G.A. Begg (editors) Tropical Fish Otoliths: Information for Assessment, Management and Ecology
1402035829 New
2009. 26cm. Pp.325. Hardbound.

Techniques and theory for processing otoliths from tropical marine fish have developed only recently due to an historic misconception that these organisms could not be aged. Otoliths are the most commonly used structures from which daily, seasonal or annual records of a fish’s environmental history are inferred, and are also used as indicators of migration patterns, home range, spatial distribution, stock structure and life history events. A large proportion of projects undertaken on tropical marine organisms involve removal and processing of calcified structures such as otoliths, statoliths or vertebrae to retrieve biological, biochemical or genetic information. Current techniques and principles have evolved rapidly and are under constant modification and these differ among laboratories, and more particularly among species and within life history stages.

Tropical Fish Otoliths: Information for assessment, management and ecology is a comprehensive description of the current status of knowledge about otoliths in the tropics. This book has contributions from leading experts in the field, encompasing a tropical perspective on daily and annual ageing in fish and invertebrates, microchemistry, interpreting otolith microstructure and using it to back-calculate life history events, and includes a treatise on the significance of validating periodicity in otoliths.
