  1. Marine Biodiversity, Climatic Variability and Global Change

    By Grégory Beaugrand

    Series: Earthscan Oceans

    Biodiversity loss in terrestrial environments associated with human activities has been appreciated as a major issue for some years now. What is less well documented is the effect of such activities, including climate change, on marine biodiversity. This pioneering book is the first to address...

  2. Immunobiology of the Shark

    Edited by Sylvia L. Smith, Robert B. Sim, Martin F. Flajnik

    Immunity studies in sharks over the past three decades have produced some remarkable discoveries. If one message rings true, it is that alternative animal model systems, such as sharks and their relatives, have contributed very substantially to a better understanding of the development evolution of...

  4. Nutritional Marine Life

    By Ramasamy Santhanam

    The nutritional benefits of marine flora and fauna are well known. Fish and crustaceans provide high-quality sources of amino acids—nutritionally important proteins found in only small amounts in cereals and grains. Nutrients and minerals in seafood can improve brain development and reproduction...

  5. Environmental Sex Differentiation in Fish

    By T. J. Pandian

    Fish constitute an important natural renewable resource and any reduction in their ability to propagate as a result of human interference may have significant socioeconomic consequences. The negative effect of human activity on sex differentiation and reproductive output in fish is so diverse that...

  6. Bioadhesion and Biomimetics

    From Nature to Applications

    Edited by Havazelet Bianco-Peled, Maya Davidovich-Pinhas

    Bioadhesion is often defined as the state in which two materials, at least one of which is biological in nature, are held together for extended periods of time by interfacial forces. This book highlights different aspects of this phenomenon. The first section of the book describes studies of...

  7. Biology and Ecology of Carp

    Edited by Constanze Pietsch, Philipp Hirsch

    Carp are the backbone of a growing aquaculture industry. Ornamental koi carp fascinate hobby breeders. Carp allow for scientific progress as a model species in laboratories, concern ecosystem managers as an invasive species, and mesmerize anglers as big game. This book covers all these facets of...

  8. Freshwater Crayfish

    A Global Overview

    Edited by Tadashi Kawai, Zen Faulkes, Gerhard Scholtz

    For their great commercial importance as a human food delicacy, crayfish are now becoming of wider interest to molecular biologists, and also to conservationists due to the fact that in some countries many of the native crayfish species are under threat from human activity, disease, and competition...
