About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents the early stages of about hundred common fishes in a standardised, illustrative layout, affording effective guidance to the investigation and identification of these stages. Emphasis is put on the illustration by clear figures and on the precision of main diagstic characters. Each species is presented in a standard two-paged format with description of development and corresponding figures of five characteristic stages; and with additional paragraphs which describe the adult characters and biology and specify the distinct characters of the larva. The series of identification sheets is introduced by a set of short, reviewing chapters, emphasising the research history and methods, and the early stage morphology and ecology. Due to their great importance in the plankton ecosystem and in fish stock replenishment, the fish eggs and larvae attract interest from a wide range of researchers. This book will be a valuable tool to the scientist and technician who need to make correct identification of collected fish larvae, and want additional information on the early development of the species.
- Author BiographyPeter Munk has been working at the Danish Institute for Fisheries Research since 1980 in the field of biological oceanography. The main focus of research has been on fish larval ecology and the variable recruitment to the fish stocks. His work covers polar, temperate and tropic waters, and publications include both experimental and field based research. Jorgen G Nielsen has been working at the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen, since 1960 in the field of fish-taxonomy. Publications include both freshwater and marine fishes, and his main interest is revisionary work within families of deep-sea fishes. He has participated in a large number of deep-sea cruises across all oceans.
