Aquaculture Microbiology and Biotechnology, Volume Two

Didier Montet, Ramesh C. Ray
November 23, 2017

Fish and shrimp producing industries generate huge amounts of wastes in form of viscera, scales, waste water, etc. Applications of microorganisms and/or microbesbased products have contributed significantly in solving many of these problems associated with aquaculture and waste management. This...

Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses

Ashish Kumar Srivastava, Amar Nath Rai, Brett A Neilan
November 15, 2017

A significant component of many different ecosystems, cyanobacteria occupy almost every niche of the earth, including fresh and salt waters, rice fields, hot springs, arid deserts, and polar regions. Cyanobacteria, along with algae, produce nearly half the global oxygen, making assessment of their...

Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review, Volume 55

S. J. Hawkins, A. J. Evans, A.C. Dale, L. B. Firth, D. J. Hughes, I. P. Smith
November 10, 2017

Ever-increasing interest in oceanography and marine biology and their relevance to global environmental issues create a demand for authoritative reviews summarizing the results of recent research. Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review has catered to this demand since its founding by the...

Indian Ocean Resources and Technology

Ganpat Singh Roonwal
October 25, 2017

The current scenario provides an ideal opportunity to confer higher priority to the marine resources of the Indian Ocean, particularly in terms of integrated management of the deep sea, shallow sea and coastal resources. This will maximize their potential in the sustainable development goal (SDG)...

Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks

Edward J. Petuch
October 23, 2017

Shallow water marine molluscan faunas are distributed in a pattern of distinct, geographically definable areas. This makes mollusks ideal for studying the distribution of organisms in the marine environment and the processes and patterns that control their evolution. Biogeography and Biodiversity...

Fractals and Multifractals in Ecology and Aquatic Science

Laurent Seuront
September 12, 2017

Ecologists sometimes have a less-than-rigorous background in quantitative methods, yet research within this broad field is becoming increasingly mathematical. Written in a step-by-step fashion, Fractals and Multifractals in Ecology and Aquatic Science provides scientists with a basic understanding...

The Biology of Lungfishes

Jorden Morup Jorgensen, Jean Joss
September 12, 2017

The Biology of Lungfishes presents an up-to-date collection of reviews on some of the most important aspects of the life of lungfishes. The book draws on contributions from well-known experts with a long record of scientific work within their respective fields. The general natural history of the...

Sex Determination in Fish

T. J. Pandian
September 12, 2017

This book is the first to report that research in allogenics/xenogenics has conclusively shown that fishes have retained bisexual potency even after sexual maturity and spermiation. The XY genotype found in the unexpected female phenotypes sired by supermales (Y1Y2) and androgenic males (Y2Y2)...

Marine Pollution and Climate Change

Andres Hugo Arias, Jorge Eduardo Marcovecchio
September 11, 2017

This book presents a broad overview of pollution issues facing climatic, economic, and legal globalization. Topics include changes in oceans from ancient times to the present, the importance of marine currents and changing climates, marine pollution linked to climate change (fossil fuels, global...

Reproduction and Development in Mollusca

T. J. Pandian
August 04, 2017

This book is perhaps the first attempt to comprehensively project the uniqueness of molluscs, covering almost all aspects of reproduction and development from aplacophorans to vampyromorphic cephalopods. Molluscs are unique for the presence of protective external shell, defensive inking, geographic...

Aquaculture Microbiology and Biotechnology, Vol. 1

Didier Montet, R.C. Ray
July 27, 2017

Aquaculture is currently one of the fastest growing production sectors in the world. It now accounts for nearly half (45%) of the world�s food fish (which refers to production of aquatic animals: fish, crustaceans, molluscs, amphibians) and this increase is expected to reach 50% in 2015. Genetic...

Analysis of Trace Organics in the Aquatic Environment

B. K. Afghan, Alfred S.Y. Chau
July 14, 2017

A supplement to previous books edited by Afgan and Chau, this publication covers the practical aspects of analytical methodology for trace organics. The book reviews the published work on the occurance, distribution, fate, effect, and environmental impact of specific classes of compounds....
