Sharks, Skates, and Rays
The Biology of Elasmobranch Fishes
Successor to the classic work in shark studies, The Elasmobranch Fishes by John Franklin Daniel (first published 1922, revised 1928 and 1934), Sharks, Skates, and Rays provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of elasmobranch morphology. Coverage has been expanded from anatomy to include modern information on physiology and biochemistry. The new volume also provides equal treatment for skates and rays. The authors present general introductory material for the relative novice but also review the latest technical citations, making the book a valuable primary reference resource. More than 200 illustrations supplement the text.
About the Author
William C. Hamlett is an associate professor of anatomy at Indiana University School of Medicine and an adjunct associate professor of biological sciences at the University of Notre Dame.
Sharks, Skates, and Rays is an important contribution to the literature on elasmobranch fishes. It successfully presents current reviews of many elasmobranch organ systems, and its equal treatment of batoids and sharks will be of great interest and value to all biologists in the field.
The range and detail of information in this book will make it a valued library addition to students of anatomy and physiology as well as those specializing in ichthyology.
