Fish Physiology: Physiology of Elasmobranch Fishes, Volume 34B is a useful reference for fish physiologists, biologists, ecologists, and conservation biologists. Following an increase in research on elasmobranchs due to the plight of sharks in today's oceans, this volume compares elasmobranchs to other groups of fish, highlights areas of interest for future research, and offers perspective on future problems. Covering measurements and lab-and-field based studies of large pelagic sharks, this volume is a natural addition to the renowned Fish Physiology series.
Provides needed comprehensive content on the physiology of elasmobranchsOffers a systems approach between structure and interaction with the environment and internal physiologyContains contributions by leading experts in their respective fields, under the guidance of internationally recognized and highly respected editorsHighlights areas of interest for future research, including perspective on future problems
