The behavior and sensory biology of elasmobranch fishes: an by Timothy C. Tricas, Samuel H. Gruber

By Timothy C. Tricas, Samuel H. Gruber

The elasmobranch fishes comprise the dwelling sharks, skates and rays which are very important contributors of approximately all marine ecosystems. Their huge dimension, secretive habit, and wide-ranging behavior cause them to tough to watch within the box or to take care of in captivity. hence, little is understood approximately their usual habit and the way it really is mediated by way of their sensory structures. This quantity is devoted to the medical contributions and reminiscence of Donald Nelson, a pioneer within the examine of shark habit, sensory biology, and distant instrumentation. the 2 starting papers overview Don Nelson's targeted clinical accomplishments and supply perception into his powerful bias in the direction of examine of animals within the box. those are through 14 medical papers on elasmobranch habit, sensory biology, and present tracking applied sciences. The papers on elasmobranch sensory biology and behaviour deal with questions about listening to, the lateral line, electroreception, the mind, orientation habit, chemical irritants, feeding, and copy. The latter portion of the amount provides papers on traditional tagging recommendations, ultrasonic telemetry, physiological telemetry, distant tracking options, archival tagging and satellite tv for pc tagging. The purpose of this quantity is to familiarize either new and proven scientists with the sensory biology and behaviour of sharks and rays, and to inspire extra behavioral learn on those animals of their typical environment.
