The invertebrates : a new synthesis by R. S. K Barnes( Book )

25 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of undergraduate texts in invertebrate zoology (of which there are many) fall into one of two categories. They either offer a systematic treatment of groups of animals phylum by phylum, or adopt a functional approach to the various anatomical and physiological systems of the better known species. The Invertebrates is the first and only textbook to integrate both approaches and thus meet the modern teaching needs of the subject.:.; This is the only invertebrate textbook to integrate systematics and functional approaches.; The molecular systematics sections have been completely upda
The Rivers handbook : hydrological and ecological principles : in two volumes by Peter Calow( Book )

44 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fast changing legislation and increasing environmental awareness within the non-scientific community demands that the modern approach to the management of rivers and water resources should be based on a sound understanding and application of the scientific and ecological principles that underlie freshwater processes. In two volumes, The Rivers Handbook offers an expert and exhaustive insight into the principles, methods and tools of modern river management - always within an integrated and environmentally acceptable framework. This second volume develops the principles and philosophies expound

Invertebrate biology : a functional approach by Peter Calow( Book )

10 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Courses on the invertebrates have two principal aims: (1) to introduce students to the diversity of animal life and (2) to make them aware that organisms are marvellously integrated systems with evolutionary pasts and ecological presents. This text is concerned exclusively with the second aim and assumes that the reader will already know something about the diversity and classification of invertebrates. Concepts of whole-organism function, metabolism and adaptation form the core of the subject-matter and this is also considered in an ecological setting. Hence, the approach is multi-disciplinary, drawing from principles normally restricted to comparative morphology and physiology, ecology and evolutionary biology. Invertebrate courses, as with all others in a science curriculum, also have another aim - to make students aware of the general methods of science. And these I take to be associated with the so-called hypothetico deductive programme. Here, therefore, I make a conscious effort to formulate simple, some might say naive, hypotheses and to confront them with quantitative data from the real world. There are, for example, as many graphs in the book as illustrations of animals. My aim, though, has not been to test out the principles of Darwinism, but rather to sharpen our focus on physiological adaptations, given the assumption that Darwinism is approximately correct. Whether or not I succeed remains for the reader to decide

Fish energetics : new perspectives by Peter Tytler( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is almost thirty years since Professor G.G. Winberg established the basis for experimental studies in fish energetics with the publication of his monograph, Rate of Metabolism and Food Requirements of Fishes. His ultimate aim was to develop a scientific approach to fish culture and management, and the immense volume of literature generated in the ensuing years has been mainly in response to the demand for information from a rapidly expanding, world-wide aquaculture industry and to the shortcomings of contemporary practices in fisheries management. The purpose of this book is not to review this literature compre hensively, but, assuming an informed readership, to focus attention on topics in which new knowledge and theory are beginning to be applied in practice. Most emphasis has been placed on food; feeding; production (growth and reproduction) and energy budgeting, as these have most influence on the development of fish culture. Some chapters offer practical advice for the selection of methods, and warn of pitfalls in previous approaches. In others the influence of new theory on the interpretation of studies in fish energetics is discussed in the context of resource allocation and adaptation. We hope that the scope of material presented here will have sufficient interest and value to help significantly to fulfil Winberg's original objectives

The Handbook of Ecotoxicology provides a readily accessible, yet critical collection of information on ecotoxicological testing. Now available in a single paperback volume, this handbook represents excellent value. Part A concentrates on techniques, especially those tests used for prediction. Thorough descriptions of the main tests are provided, followed by critical analyses in terms of ease of handling, repeatability and ecological relevance, and finally, an extensive bibliography citing key documents describing test methods and key papers evaluating them. Part B focuses on the toxicants them
