Advances in Squid Biology, Ecology and Fisheries. Part I: Myopsid squids

"This volume describes research on the biology (life history, age and growth, maturation and fecundity), ecology (distribution, migrations, diet, predators and parasites) and fisheries (fishing areas, methods, landings, management and stock assessment) of economically important myopsid squids. which are typically associated with the seabed of the inshore coastal zone."

Advances in Squid Biology, Ecology and Fisheries. Part II: Oegopsid squids

"The aims of this volume are basically the same as with the previous one, Part II dealing with oegopsid squids, which – in contrast to the myopsids – belong to the pelagic, oceanic environment." READ MORE... - Sigurd v. Boletzky, Associate Editor VIE ET MILIEU – Life and Environment

Salmon: Biology, Ecological Impacts and Economic Importance

"The new book published by NOVA Publishers, USA, “Salmon: Biology, Ecological Impacts and Economic Importance” is a collection of scientific reviews in diverse fields of salmonid ecology, morphology, genetics, fisheries, aquaculture, and economic importance of salmon. Twenty-eight authors from seven “salmon-dependent” (a word from Chapter 14 that caught my fancy) countries represent 15 chapters filled with both well-known and new information on considered issues."

Neuroecology and Neuroethology in Molluscs: The Interface between Behaviour and Environment

"This book makes a strong case for the importance of molluscs in the study and development of neuroecology as a discipline. At first sight, molluscs do not seem to be a promising group of animals for this area of biology. There appears to be a mismatch between the model organisms used for neuroethology and those species that are most valuable for ecological studies." READ MORE... - Paul R. Benjamin, Professor of Neuroscience, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, United Kingdom

Post-Cambrian Testate Foraminifera as a System in its Evolution

"The book begins with a historical review of the previous attempts at classifying the Foraminifera beginning with d’Orbigny. Both western and Russian sources are quoted, so the review is quite comprehensive and an impressive list of references is cited."
