Fish Physiology: The Physiology of Polar Fishes
- Anthony Farrell, Dept of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
- John Steffensen, University of Copenhagen
Volume 22 of the Fish Physiology Series is entirely devoted to fishes of high latitudes (Arctic and Antarctic). Three central themes comprise the book:The uniqueness of the physiology of fishes that live in cold polar environments, a comparative analysis of physiological patterns exemplified by fishes that live poles apart and, how fishes differ from fishes living in more temperate and tropical habitats.This book highlights the physiological adaptations that evolved to allow certain fish to exploit the frigid, yet productive, Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. The reader will explore what is known, as well as what remains undiscovered, concerning the fish indigenous to both polar regions. This will be of great interest to physiologists, ichthyologists, and comparative biologists researching low temperature biology, fishery scientists, faculty, graduate students
Physiologists, ichthyologists, comparative biologists interested in low temperature biology, fishery scientists, and Faculty, graduates students and researchers in these and other disciplines related to oceanography and marine biology.
