Successor to The Elasmobranch Fishes by Frank Daniel (1922), this title provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of elasmobranch morphology. Coverage includes anatomy and modern information on both physiology and biochemistry with equal treatment for both skates and rays.
'Sharks, Skates, and Rays' is an important contribution to the literature on elasmobranch fishes. It successfully presents current reviews of many elasmobranch organ systems, and its equal treatment of batoids and sharks will be of great interest and value to all biologists in the field.--David M. Koester, University of New England
