    As the largest group of extant vertebrates, fish offer an almost limitless number of striking examples of evolutionary adaptation to environmental and biotic selection pressure. The most diverse of all vertebrate groups, the higher taxa of fish traditionally have been classified by morphology and paleontology, with a much smaller input of cytogenetic information. DNA sequence data are exerting an increasingly strong influence on modern fish systematics, challenging the classification of numerous higher taxa ranging from genera to orders. The most fruitful approach, however, involves synthetic analyses of morphology, molecular phylogenetics, comparative karyology, and genome size. Karyotypes of more than 3400 species/subspecies are arranged here by fish systematics and include a list of genome size, sex chromosomes, B chromosomes, polyploidy, and locality of material fish, among others. This volume enables both beginners and advanced researchers to survey the existing literature and facilitates the implementation of an integrative approach to fish systematics. The first book on fish chromosomes in nearly 15 years, it is also the most comprehensive.
  • Fish Morphology

    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.
  • Forest Entomology In East Africa: Forest Insects of Tanzania

    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.
