  1. Aquaculture Technology in Developing Countries

    Edited by Randall E. Brummett

    Aquaculture technology has been evolving rapidly over the last two decades, led by an increasingly skilled cadre of researchers in developing countries. Rather than copying, or adapting work done in industrialized countries to their situations, these scientists are moving aquaculture research...

  4. Eel Physiology

    Edited by Francesca Trischitta, Yoshio Takei, Philippe Sébert

    Eel of the genus Anguilla is an extraordinary fish, which due to its particular life cycle has fascinated biologists and physiologists ever since the pioneering works of Homer H. Schmidt in the 1930s. The Eel has become an excellent model for various aspects of adaptive physiological research....

  6. Marine Genetic Resources, Access and Benefit Sharing

    Legal and Biological Perspectives

    By Bevis Fedder

    Access to genetic resources and Benefit Sharing (ABS) has been promoted under the Convention on Biological Diversity, with the aim of combining biodiversity conservation goals with economic development. However, as this book shows, since its inception in 1992, implementation has encountered...

  7. Endocrine Sex Differentiation in Fish

    By T. J. Pandian

    Of all vertebrates, fish exhibit unparalleled diversity of sexual plasticity and flexibility, ranging from gonochorism to unisexualism, and exceptional patterns of functional hermaphroditism. Fish farming and monosex aquaculture have led to reproductive dysfunction with males producing less milt,...

  8. Chemical Oceanography, Fourth Edition

    By Frank J. Millero

    Over the past ten years, a number of new large-scale oceanographic programs have been initiated. These include the Climate Variability Program (CLIVAR) and the recent initiation of the Geochemical Trace Metal Program (GEOTRACES). These studies and future projects will produce a wealth of...

  9. Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks

    By Edward J. Petuch

    Shallow water marine molluscan faunas are distributed in a pattern of distinct, geographically definable areas. This makes mollusks ideal for studying the distribution of organisms in the marine environment and the processes and patterns that control their evolution. Biogeography and Biodiversity...
