Physiology of Polar Fishes by Anthony P. Farrell

Book Description

Volume 22 of the "Fish Physiology" series is entirely devoted to fishes of high latitudes (Arctic and Antarctic). Three central themes comprise the book: the uniqueness of the physiology of fishes that live in cold polar environments, a comparative analysis of physiological patterns exemplified by fishes that live poles apart and, how fishes differ from fishes living in more temperate and tropical habitats. This book highlights the physiological adaptations that evolved to allow certain fish to exploit the frigid, yet productive, Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. The reader will explore what is known, as well as what remains undiscovered, concerning the fish indigenous to both polar regions. This will be of great interest to physiologists, ichthyologists, and comparative biologists researching low temperature biology, fishery scientists, faculty, graduate students. It offers an comparative analysis of the arctic and antarctic polar marine environments. Authors answer the question: What is special about the physiology of fish from the stenothermal Arctic and Antarctic environments? It includes nine descriptive chapters, 40 tables and over 80 figures.

Fish Physiology: Euryhaline Fishes by Anthony P. Farrell Fish Physiology: Euryhaline Fishes, Hardback (March 2013)

The need for ion and water homeostasis is common to all life. For fish, ion and water homeostasis is an especially important challenge because they live in direct contact with water and because of the large variation in the salt content of natural waters. This volume provides the integrative review of euryhalinity in fish.

Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Non-Essential Metals by Anthony P. Farrell Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Non-Essential Metals, Hardback (September 2011)

Synthesizes the explosion of information on the molecular, cellular, and organismal handling of metals in fish. This title covers metals that are either proven to be or are strongly suspected to be useful in trace amounts, yet are toxic in higher doses.

Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Essential Metals by Anthony P. Farrell Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Essential Metals, Hardback (September 2011)

Synthesizes the explosion of information on the molecular, cellular, and organismal handling of metals in fish. This title covers metals that have no known nutritive function in fish, but which are toxic at fairly low levels, such as Ag, Al, Cd, Pb, Hg, As, Sr, and U.

Encyclopedia of Fish Physiology by Anthony P. Farrell Encyclopedia of Fish Physiology, Hardback (June 2011)

Covers the diversity of fish physiology in over 300 articles and provides entry level information for students and summary overviews for researchers alike. This title includes coverage of basic functional physiology of fishes, physiological themes in fish biology and comparative physiology amongst taxonomic Groups.

Author Biography - Anthony P. Farrell

Tony Farrell is a graduate of Bath University, where he was fortunate to study with Peter Lutz. His fortunes grew further when he moved in 1974 to Canada and the Zoology Department at the University of British Columbia to complete his Ph.D. degree under the superb tutelage of Dave Randall. In 2004, Tony returned to UBC when he accepted an endowed research chair in Sustainable Aquaculture. In between these positions at UBC, Tony was employed at the University of Southern California (PDF), the University of New Brunswick (sessional lecturer), Mount Allison University (first real job) and Simon Fraser University (moving through the ranks to a full professor). In addition to highly controlled laboratory experiments on fish cardiorespiratory physiology, Tony is committed to working on animals in their own environment. Therefore, his research on fish physiology has taken him on an Alpha Helix expedition to the Amazon, the University of Gothenburg and the Kristineberg Marine Research Station in Sweden, the Portobello Marine Biological Station in New Zealand, the University of Christchurch and Massey University in New Zealand, the Bamfield Marine Science Station and the Huntsman Marine Station in Canada, the University of Aarhus in Denmark, the University of Adelaide Charles and Darwin University in Australia, and to the Danish Arctic Marine Station on Disco Island in Greenland. These travels have allowed him to work and with many superb collaborators word-wide, as well as study the physiology of over 70 different species of fish. Tony has received a number of awards for his scientific contributions: an honorary degree from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden; Awards of Excellence from the American Fisheries Society for Fish Physiology, Conservation and Management; the Fry Medal from the Canadian Society of Zoologists; and the Beverton Medal from the Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
