About this book

Reprinted from Environmental Biology of Fishes 44:1-3. Six major areas of fish biology are examined: feeding, sensory systems, locomotion, respiration, reproduction and phylogenetic relationships.

'Bedauerlicherwiese scheint es heutzutage unmoglich zu sein, zu inthaltlich so wertvolles Buch zu einem Preis anzubieten, der den Kauf auch fur Doktoranden leicht macht.' Ethology, 134:4 (1997)
