This comprehensive book on the venomous stingrays of the world provides first-hand information on the diversity, biology, and ecology of venomous stingrays of freshwater, brackish, and marine ecosystems.

Each year thousands of injuries to swimmers and surfers are reported, with 750 to 1,500 stingray injuries reported each year in the US alone. As more vacationers spend their leisure time exploring coasts and tropical reefs, often in isolated areas without immediate access to advanced health care, there will be greater potential for stingray injuries. A thorough understanding of the diversity of stingrays of marine and freshwater ecosystems, the injuries and envenomations they cause would largely improve the public health community’s ability to better manage and to prevent stingray injuries. This volume fills that gap.

With over 200 photos and illustrations, this book shows the characteristics of venomous stingray families along with other profile information, such as common name, geographical distribution, diagnostic features, reproduction, predators, parasites, and the IUCN conservation status. Importantly, it includes valuable information on stingray injuries, envenomation, and medical management.

Features:

- provides first-hand information on the diversity, biology, and ecology of venomous stingrays of freshwater, brackish and marine ecosystems
- helps to improve the public health community’s ability to better manage and to prevent stingray injuries
- illustrates the characteristics of venomous stingray families with over 200 photos and illustrations, many in colour

Very informative for students of fisheries science, marine biology, aquatic biology, and environmental sciences, a standard reference for marine professionals, health practitioners, and college and university libraries, a must-have turn-to help on-board.
