Fish Physiology Vol 06-Environmental Relations and Behavior
Environmental Relations and Behavior
[Fish Physiology Series - Vol 06]
By William S Hoar, David J Randall
Publisher: Academic Press
Volume VI of this treatise is concerned with the physiological and behavioral responses of fish to a variety of environmental situations. The approach is not a detailed analysis of parts of the animal, as in previous volumes, but treats the fish as an integrated unit interacting with its environment. The first three chapters of this volume examine physiological and biochemical adaptations of fish to a variety of environments. In some respects these chapters also reflect somewhat different approaches toward an understanding of how animals adapt to their environments. The next three chapters discuss the extensive literature on behavioral studies of fishes. Chapter 7 reviews the fascinating problem of fish migration and orientation. The final chapter is an appendix to all six volumes and presents what we consider useful information to those interested in experimenting with fishes.
