Aspects of decapod crustacean biology

£19.99

Product description

The proceedings of a symposium held at the Zoological Society of London on 8th and 9th April 1987. This collection of essays deals with themes in the life cycles and natural history of various species of decapod crustaceans,;The programme of the symposium was based loosely on the larval biology and ecophysiological adaptions of decapods. The background linking themes were life histories, including larval recruitment and other aspects of commercial exploitation of decapods.;Since many of them are being farmed, their life cycle, behaviour and reproductive physiology are of particular interest. Others are fished from the wild, where issues such as the rate of growth and replenishment of populations, predation and movement are important considerations. In both cases, the uptake of trace metals and other potential pollutants is a concern.;The symposium also included papers designed to be of interest to a wider spectrum of biologists such as evolutionary trends in these species and studies of ontogeny and taxonomy. Other papers discussed the general and endocrine physiology and nervous systems of these creatures. Some details of ongoing research were included.;The work is designed for those involved in invertebrate zoology, ecology, population biology, physiology, fisheries and neurobiology. Edited by A. A. Fincham and P.S Rainbow. Used hardback. Very good condition. Very slight bumping to foredge corners (front and back) and top and bottom of spine. Externally protected by loose cellophane jacket. Internally clean but with small owner's signature to first free end paper and dedication from P S Rainbow on title page. Sound binding.
