The Physiology of Fishes 4th Edition

By David H. Evans, James B. Claiborne and Suzanne Currie

The Physiology of Fishes PDF provides comprehensive coverage of the most important aspects of the form and function of fishes. It covers the most recent advances as well as fundamental subjects such as cardiovascular physiology, intestinal transport, and gill ion uptake. Written by an international group of experts, this book contains fresh approaches, with completely new treatment of the original topics and the addition of new chapters:

  • Muscle plasticity
  • Membranes and Metabolism
  • Oxygen Sensing
  • Endocrine Disruption
  • Pain Perception
  • Cardiac Regeneration
  • Neuronal Regeneration

Two decades after the publication of the first edition, this book remains the only published single-volume work on fish physiology. Each chapter contains an extensive bibliography, providing readers with the best sources from the primary literature. The fourth edition provides an important reference for aquatic biologists, ichthyologists, fisheries scientists, and comparative physiologists.
