9780123504487: Behaviour and Physiology of Fish: 24 (Fish Physiology)

Traditionally, behaviour and physiology have been considered two separate fields of biology with the majority of available literature focusing on one or the other. Recently, the need for a multidisciplinary approach to these topics has been realised, highlighted by some of the sessions to be held at the 2003 annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology such as regulation of behaviour and mechanisms of behaviour. The proposed volume aims to bring together these disciplines in a comprehensive review of the available literature. Volume 24 will be novel in actively bridging these two areas of fish biology together and considering them as inextricably linked. The progression of chapters focuses on different aspects of the life history of a fish, from predator avoidance through to reproduction, each written by scientists currently bridging the gap between behaviour and physiology in their own specialised subdiscipline. There is multidisciplinary and integrative research in fish biology. It is written by internationally recognized researchers. It encompasses the whole life span of fish. A wide variety of inter-related topics are presented in a cohesive format.

Review:

"In Behaviour and Physiology of Fish, Katherine Sloman, Rod Wilson and Sigal Balshine have eminently addressed the intimate interplay of the underlying physiological processes and behavioural output that enable us to better understand the proximate mechanisms and functions of fish behaviour...With reference to the title of this book review, there is indeed something fishy going on, and the link between behaviour and physiology is detailed exquisitely here. I highly recommend this book to undergraduates and postgraduates who are interested in either realm or who intend to study a combination of mechanistic and functional questions regarding behaviour. Any fish biologist who wishes to understand the current state of the art should also read this book as a base for future studies. I do hope to see a second edition of this book since the editors tantalisingly mention genomics and proteomics in their introduction. Post-genomic technology should provide fresh new insight into the, as yet, elusive causes of particular behaviours in future studies. This is an exciting time for the field of behaviour and physiology and this book will provide an interesting read for those who share my enthusiasm." - Lynne U. Sneddon, University of Liverpool, UK, in THE JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY
