Reef Fishes of Hong Kong by Yvonne Sadovy

By Yvonne Sadovy

Скалистые рифы и коралловые сообщества Гонконга обладают богатой и удивительной фауной, практически не знакомой тем, кто никогда не занимался подводным плаванием. Книга представляет детальный обзор рифовых рыб, до сих пор малоизвестных и в самом Гонконге. Она включает описания 320 видов рыб, треть из которых никогда ранее не указывалась для региона. Книга будет будет полезна дайверам, рыболовам, биологам и другим специалистам в целях определения рыб и исследования их биологии и распространения в северном секторе Южного Китайского моря.

Mediterranean Island Landscapes: Natural and Cultural Approaches (Landscape Series) (Landscape Series)

Mediterranean islands show many similarities of their biotic ecological, actual and environmental features. There also are many ameliorations by way of their human colonization and present anthropogenic pressures. This e-book addresses in 3 sections those features and examines the main environmental adjustments that the islands skilled through the Quaternary interval.

Aquaculture, Innovation and Social Transformation

Aquaculture, Innovation and Social Transformation offers and translates Canadian and foreign views at the debate over the way forward for aquaculture in Canada. unique chapters study: animal welfare;knowledge administration and highbrow estate; environmental sustainability; neighborhood, conventional, and aboriginal wisdom; shoppers; and built-in coastal area administration.

Cephalopod Culture

Cephalopod tradition is the 1st compilation of analysis at the tradition of cephalopods. It describes reports of culturing varied teams of cephalopods: nautiluses, sepioids (Sepia officinalis, Sepia pharaonis, Sepiella inermis, Sepiella japonica Euprymna hyllebergi, Euprymna tasmanica), squids (Loligovulgaris, Doryteuthis opalescens, Sepioteuthis lessoniana) and octopods (Amphioctopus aegina, Enteroctopus megalocyathus, Octopus maya, Octopus mimus, Octopus minor, Octopus vulgaris, Robsonella fontaniana).

Eel Physiology

Eel of the genus Anguilla is a unprecedented fish, which because of its specific existence cycle has involved biologists and physiologists ever because the pioneering works of Homer H. Schmidt within the Thirties. The Eel has develop into an outstanding version for numerous points of adaptive physiological examine. regardless of that, numerous books facing eel biology, aquaculture, fishing, and so forth.

2003). Sediments that are trapped in reservoirs are unable to perform two vital functions downstream. First, sediment is needed to preserve the geomorphologic makeup (or physical structure) of the river system downstream that directly influences habitat quality and availability (Power et al. 1996). In the Mekong basin, this includes the Vietnam Delta, wetlands, the near-shore ocean ecosystem, and floodplain ecosystems. , clay) adsorb and transport nutrients, particularly phosphorus, which play an important role in primary production and floodplain fertility (Baran and Guerin 2012).

B. P. Loucks trapping efficiency (based on sediment size), and reservoir operating policies to capture the range of potential tradeoffs between sediment regime restoration and energy production. 6 Conclusions Water resources infrastructure in the Mekong River Basin is growing at a rapid pace. This infrastructure will impact the natural flow and sediment regimes that in turn can impact the natural ecosystem of this biodiverse river and its basin. Sediment management opportunities should be considered for two reasons.
