About this book

Provides a comprehensive survey of the biology of fishes.


The basicranial alar process - an evolutionary perspective; histochemical localization of steroidogenic enzymes in the testis of pontius sarana (Hamilton); the late 20th century insights into oxygen sensing and regulation in metabolic defense against hypoxia; recent advances in gonadal development, sex determination and maturation, and sex reversal in fish; the stress responses in fish; methods for study of fish feeding and growth; age and growth of an endangered coldwater fish, the golden mahseer, tor putitora (Hamilton) from Gobindsagar, Himachal Pradesh, India; the teleost bulvuas arteriosus - form and function; chemosensory systems in fishes - morphology, physiology and role in behaviour; acetylcholinesterase - its activity and kinetics in fish tissues; influence of bovine growth hormone (bGH) and dietary protein supplement on the growth and development of skeletal muscle in canna punctuates (Bloc); skin and superficial mucus of fish - biochemical structure and functional role; natural cytotoxic response in fish - a review; control of breathing in fish - role of chemoreceptor inputs; use of non-conventional dietary ingredients in fish feed formulations; some aspects of teleost vitellogenesis; functional organization and scaling bimodal gas exchangers in relation to body weight of an estuarine amphibious goby, pseudopocryptes lanceolatus; neurohypophysical principles at the base of the vertebrate tree - a personal and historical view of the elasmobranch and cyclostomes; factors influencing the optimization of haemoglobin-oxygen transport in fish; nutrition and feeding of the air-breathing catfish claias batrachus - a brief review; sex chromosomes in fish; histology and cytology of fish liver - a review; events of biochemical integration during the reproductive cycle of a female marl, canna orientalis (Schneider); direct division of intravascular carp (cyprinus carpio); erythrocytes - cytophotometric evidence of two different cleavage patterns; bile reabsorption in rainbow trout (oncorhynchus mykiss) as indicated by intestinal uptake of 14C-labelled glycocholic acid; fish of the Amazon - surviving environmental changes; ecomorphology of prey capture in fish; the neuroendocrine in the skin and gills of fish.
