Cyprinid Fishes: Systematics, biology and exploitation by G. J. Howes (auth.), Ian J. Winfield, Joseph S. Nelson

By G. J. Howes (auth.), Ian J. Winfield, Joseph S. Nelson (eds.)

Among the fishes. a remarkably wide variety ofbiological diversifications to diversified habitats has developed. As weIl as dwelling within the traditional habitats of lakes. ponds. rivers. rock swimming pools and the open sea. fish have solved the issues of existence in deserts. within the deep sea. within the chilly Antarctic. and in hot waters of excessive alkalinity or of low oxygen. besides those diversifications. we discover the main outstanding specializations of morphology. body structure and behavior. for instance we will be able to surprise on the high-speed swimming of the marlins. sailfish and warm-blooded tunas. air inhaling catfish and lungfish. parental care within the mouth-brooding cichlids and viviparity in lots of sharks and toothcarps. additionally. fish are of substantial value of the survival of the human species within the shape ofnutritious and scrumptious nutrition ofnumerous forms. Rational exploitation and administration of our worldwide shares of fishes needs to depend on an in depth and designated perception in their biology. The Chapman and corridor Fish and Fisheries sequence goals to offer well timed volumes reviewing vital facets of fish biology. so much volumes might be of curiosity to analyze employees in biology. zoology. ecology and body structure. yet an extra goal is for the books to be available to a large spectrum of non­ professional readers starting from undergraduates and postgraduates to these with an curiosity in commercial and advertisement facets of fish and fisheries.
