ROSS, Stephen T. Ecology of North American freshwater fishes. Berkeley: University of California Press, 2013, 460 s. Dostupné z: ebrary.com.
The North American freshwater fish fauna is the most diverse and thoroughly researched temperate fish fauna in the world. Ecology of North American Freshwater Fishes is the only textbook to provide advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers with an up-to-date and integrated view of the ecological and evolutionary concepts, principles, and processes involved in the formation and maintenance of this fauna.
Ecology of North American Freshwater Fishes provides readers with a broad understanding of why specific species and assemblages occur in particular places. Additionally, the text explores how individuals and species interact with each other and with their environments, how such interactions have been altered by anthropogenic impacts, and the relative success of efforts to restore damaged ecosystems.
This book is designed for use in courses related to aquatic and fish ecology, fish biology, ichthyology, and related advanced ecology and conservation courses, and is divided into five sections for ease of use. Chapter summaries, supplemental reading lists, online sources, extensive figures, and color photography are included to guide readers through the material and facilitate student learning.
This exciting new reference offers a wealth of practical and technical information on the chemical, physical, and biological effects of intensive rearing conditions on hatchery fish, and the adverse effect these factors can have on their health and physical condition. A unique combination of theory and practical applications is presented throughout the book, providing the scientific basis for managing water quality, fish cultural procedures, and the biological interactions of the fish being produced to prevent diseases and costly production losses. The book begins with a discussion of the physiological functioning of fish under normal conditions. It then explains the interactions between fish and the chemical factors in the rearing environment, including effects of the algal toxins that currently cause serious economic losses in freshwater and marine aquaculture operations world-wide. The next chapter covers the physiological effects of common fish cultural procedures, with emphasis on crowding (density tolerance), handling, and transportation, and effects on smolt development of anadromous salmonids. This section is followed by a discussion of the stress and disease problems that can result from biological interactions between the fish themselves and between fish and facultative and obligate microbial pathogens present in the rearing environment. Emphasis is on methods of preventing stress and disease problems in this section. The book concludes by exploring the biological, physical, and chemical methods of minimizing the fish pathogen load in hatchery water supplies. Thorough and complete, this indispensable resource provides professionals in fishery, biology, aquaculture, and naturalresource management with the basic technical knowledge needed to improve management of the interactions between fish and the chemical, physical, and biological factors in the rearing environment. In addition, this book will serve as a useful text for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in fishery, biology, and zoology.
Kniha je určena především pro pěstitele sladkovodních a mořských ryb a bezobratlých živočichů a pojednává o tom, jak tyto živočichy v umělých podmínkách chovat a jak kontrolovat fyzikálně-chemické parametry vody ovlivňující jejich fyziologii. Akvaristé zde (kromě jiného) najdou i velmi obsáhlé informace o biologické, mechanické a chemické filtraci a nitrifikaci.
The second, completely rewritten edition of this simple, concise handbook on water quality control in closed-system environments, is focusing on aquariums. Shows how to culture fishes and invertebrates in closed systems by controlling the chemical factors in the environment that bring about changes in normal physiology. Demonstrates that accumulating toxic metabolites are the primary limiting factors in aquatic animal culture and that removing them on a continuous basis should be the foremost objective in routine water management. Includes theoretical principles as well as practical water management techniques.
Chapter topics include: Biological and mechanical filtration processes, removal of dissolved organic carbon, methods of disinfection, gas exchange and respiration by aquatic animals, seawater, buffering toxicity and diseases prevention, and aquarium water analytical methods. The text has been updated and rewritten, dealing with applicable theoretical and practical subjects. A new section, "Management Practices," has been added to the end of each chapter.
