Fish Pheromones And Related Cues
Organisms release pheromones into their environments to allow them to communicate with other members of their species. Pheromones are of increasing interest in both basic and applied aspects of fish biology. Fish Pheromones and Related Cues provides a timely synthesis of this growing body of pheromone research exploring everything from how these chemical signals are processed to the potential application of pheromone research on fish culture and conservation. Fish Pheromones and Related Cues opens with a useful overview of fish pheromone research. Chapters then examine the biological importance of pheromones in inter- and intraspecies communication, and the role these chemical cues play in a variety biological functions from reproduction to predation. The final chapters provide valuable insight into how pheromones are being applied in real-world efforts to culture fish species and to conserve our wild-borne populations from pollutants and invasive species. With far-reaching economic and ecological implications, Fish Pheromones and Related Cues will be an essential volume for anyone working in the fields of fish biology, aquatic conservation, ecology, and aquaculture.
