The first edition of this classic text appeared in and was revised and expanded for the second edition in ; this review refers to the third edition - but any edition you can lay hands on will be well worth your while. Methods and problems involved in determining ,age, growth, fecundity and mortality rates are described and their use in age-structured models Within the context of the reproductive biology of these fishes. Modern immunological and genetic techniques, satellite telemetry and archival tagging, modern phylogenetic analysis, GIS, and bomb dating, Virtually every area of research associated with sharks and their relatives has been strongly impacted by the revolutionary growth in technology. An illustrated key to shark orders and families aids narrowing down options when keying out a specimen. With the gorgeous illustrations, it is a book that both adults and children can enjoy. For VHS: barely detectable distortion or very few fuzzy or snowy frames.
Improving the shark's image by being realistic and sensible about them is one of the stated goals of this work, and the authors have succeeded admirably. We have asked our authors to consider human interactions and anthropogenic effects on worldwide populations and the potential extinction risks posed from survival under increasing threats from changes in habitat, changes in water chemistry, and increasing commercial exploitation. Struik Publishers, Capetown. In Everything Sharks, exciting photographs depict great whites, hammerheads, and more. Fair FR : Basically plays, but may be obviously well-worn with some scratching or tape distortion.
Written by one of the premier shark biologists working today and illustrated by the very talented D. It features nearly every species of known shark, including newly discovered sharks that do not have taxonomic descriptions yet. The volume works very well as an up-date and extension of Sanford Moss' Sharks: an Introduction for the Amateur Naturalist as well as a stand-alone reference.
