Following the success of the bestselling third edition, this newly updated and completely revised fourth edition of The Physiology of Fishes provides comprehensive coverage of the most important aspects of the form and function of fishes. It covers the most recent advances as well as fundamental subjects such as cardiovascular physiology, intestinal transport, and gill ion uptake. Written by an international group of experts, this book contains fresh approaches, with completely new treatment of the original topics and the addition of new chapters:

Muscle plasticityMembranes and Metabolism Oxygen SensingEndocrine DisruptionPain PerceptionCardiac RegenerationNeuronal Regeneration

Two decades after the publication of the first edition, this book remains the only published single-volume work on fish physiology. Each chapter contains an extensive bibliography, providing readers with the best sources from the primary literature. The fourth edition provides an important reference for aquatic biologists, ichthyologists, fisheries scientists, and comparative physiologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...ambitious and stimulating."
-Hartmut Greven, in Bulletin of Fish Biology

Praise for the third edition:

"The new edition of The Physiology of Fishes seems likely to continue the trend of the two previous editions that have each been regarded at the time as the best single reference text for fish physiology .... The multi-author approach of The Physiology of Fishes works well in providing detailed reviews with a high level of insight. ... Overall, The Physiology of Fishes provides a series of stimulating and valuable reviews that emphasize future directions for research."
-Anne Brown, University of Exeter & Aquatonics Ltd, Journal of Fish Biology, March 2007, 70

"With this third edition, David Evans (now with coeditor James Claiborne) has improved on his highly successful Fish Physiology volume.... Most of the chapters are written by one or two of the leading researchers in the field .... All of the chapters have large and up-to-date bibliographies that will be a starting point for further research.... it will be ideal for graduate students who have already mastered the concepts and language of comparative physiology. For fish biologists whose days of coursework are over, it will be a valuable resource and reference."
-Stephen D McCormick, Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 82, No. 2, June 2007

Praise for the second edition:

"The high quality of the chapters has been maintained. Lists of reference are extensive and up to date. This book continues to be the best single-volume, general reference to fish physiology. It is a worthwhile investment."
-Malcolm S. Gordon, University of California, Los Angeles, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, December 1998
