Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Crayfish are the largest, mobile freshwater invertebrates with some 540 recognised species. They are of long standing interest to anatomists and physiologists. For their great commercial importance as a human food delicacy, crayfish are now becoming of wider interest to molecular biologists, and also to conservationists due to the fact that in some countries many of the native crayfish species are under threat from human activity, disease, and competition from other introduced crayfish species. This fully comprehensive book covers all major aspects of these important animals, including taxonomy, anatomy, evolution, growth and reproduction, behaviour, ecology, physiology, conservation, genetics, immunology, environmental aspects, and diseases. There are separate chapters on each genus of crayfish of commercial importance. Written by 22 well--known experts, Biology of Freshwater Crayfish has been carefully edited by David Holdich, internationally recognised for his work with these animals. The book is an essential purchase for anyone involved with the biology or exploitation of crayfish, including freshwater and invertebrate biologists and personnel involved in fisheries and aquaculture. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological sciences, fisheries or aquaculture are studied or taught should have copies of this important book on their shelves.

Critique: "As a reference text, the Biology of Freshwater Crayfish is invaluable... This is a classic; buy it now and ensure that it does not, like its predecessor, slip out of print prematurely." Fish (Institute of Fisheries Management)

"A beautifully produced and totally comprehensive book... invaluable for students and experts of crayfish alike." Aquaculture News, April 2002

"This is a large and remarkably comprehensive book. The breadth of coverage is impressive... a most worthwhile addition to a library." Stephanie Peay, Aquatic Conservation, 2003.
