Fish Physiology: Physiology of Elasmobranch Fishes, Volume 34Ais a useful reference for fish physiologists, biologists, ecologists, and conservation biologists. Following an increase in research on elasmobranchs due to the plight of sharks in today's oceans, this volume compares elasmobranchs to other groups of fish, highlights areas of interest for future research, and offers perspective on future problems. Covering measurements and lab-and-field based studies of large pelagic sharks, this volume is a natural addition to the renowned Fish Physiology series.

  • Provides needed comprehensive content on the physiology of elasmobranchs
  • Offers a systems approach between structure and interaction with the environment and internal physiology
  • Contains contributions by leading experts in their respective fields, under the guidance of internationally recognized and highly respected editors
  • Highlights areas of interest for future research, including perspective on future problems
The primary goal of his research program is to investigate environmental adaptations (both mechanistic and evolutionary) in relation to gas-exchange, acid-base balance and ion regulation in fish, integrating responses from the molecular, cellular and organismal level. The ultimate goal is to understand how evolutionary pressures have s...
