Fish have evolved to colonise almost every type of aquatic habitat and today they are a hugely diverse group of over 25,000 species. The evolution of this great diversity of species has resulted in a myriad of solutions to the demands posed by the aquatic environment. Ecological and Environmental Physiology of Fish presents a current and comprehensive overview of fish physiology to demonstrate how living fish function in their environment. As with other books in the Series, the emphasis is on the unique physiological characteristics of the fish, but withapplications to questions of broad relevance in physiological ecology. A preliminary chapter introduces the aquatic environment and gives a general description of fish biology, evolution, and taxonomy. Subsequent sections discuss the particular problems of living in water, life in extremeenvironments, techniques for studying fish ecophysiology, and future research directions.
F. Brian Eddy has researched and taught fish biology and physiology for over 40 years. After graduating from the University of London (B.Sc 1965), he worked and studied in the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory, London until 1968, then completed a PhD at the University of Bristol (1971), followed by postdoctoral research at the Universit...
