  • Effects of Pollution on Fish: Molecular Effects and Population Responses

    The impact of pollution on fisheries and the potential health implications of eating contaminated fish are areas of considerable concern for the fishing and aquaculture communities, government bodies and the general public. Pollution, as well as over fishing, may well be contributory to recent serious declines in global fish stocks. Effects of Pollution on Fish brings together the work of many international experts each of whom have examined the literature on marine and freshwater fish and, where appropriate, invertebrates, to produce comprehensive chapters covering all major aspects of the impacts of pollution on fish and fisheries. The book describes these impacts in detail, from the molecular and sub-cellular level, through organism to population and community levels, and subsequently to socio-economic implications. The editors of this thorough and timely book have drawn together contributions encompassing molecular genetics, biochemistry, physiology, population and community biology, and fishery economics. As such, this important book will be of great use and interest to students and professionals studying and teaching in all those subject areas. Fish biologists, environmental scientists and ecotoxicologists, marine and freshwater ecologists, fisheries managers, aquaculture personnel and fish farmers, as well as fish veterinarians will all find much of great value within this book. Libraries in universities and research establishments concerned with these areas should all have copies of this book on their shelves.

    Fish Morphology: Horizon of New Research, an edited, multiauthored book, deals with the form and function relationships of fish morphology both at the macro and micro levels. It also examines the relationships between hard and soft structures and among the soft structures at the cellular and subcellular levels. This book analyzes the philosophy of functional morphology, ontogeny and phylogeny of air breathers; morphometrics of the respiratory organs of air-breathing fish, gill dimension; vascular organization, digestive system tract appendages, liver, gall bladder, structural configurations and functional correlations of the fish ovary; locomotory muscles, air bladder, cephalic sensory canal system. This book also provides a composite approach in analyzing the effects of pollutants on organs' microscopic structure and ultrastructure, physiology and behavior of the fish. Twenty-six eminent scientists from five continents have contributed chapters in this book.

    Sales of produce that has been trimmed or peeled, washed, and packaged for consumers' convenience totaled about $11 billion in 2000, accounting for over 10 percent of the total fresh fruit and vegetable market; sales are expected to continue increasing by 10 to 15 percent annually. Editor Lamikanra (a USDA chemist) provides 14 chapters covering the biochemical, physiological, microbiological, and quality changes in fresh-cut processing and storage as well as packaging requirements, production economics, and marketing considerations. The reference is intended for students, food scientists, plant physiologists, microbiologists, chemists, biochemists, chemical engineers, nutritionists, agricultural economists, and molecular biologists.

    Abetted by recent technological advances in scanning and transmission electron microscopy, as well as new preparative methods, these contributions examine crustacean anatomy, demonstrating (or at least inferring) the functions of morphological features. In addition to feeding and grooming, they also consider issues related to the classification and functional understanding of setae, ubiquitous structures in crustaceans. With quite reasonable b&w micrographs. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
