The third edition of Biology of Fishes has been revised and updated. Bone (The Marine Biological Association, UK) and Moore (biology, Coastal Carolina University) begin with the various types of fish, where they thrive, how they swim and float. They continue with a thorough investigation of the biological systems of fish: endocrinology, reproduction, diet, nervous and sensory systems, circulatory and immune systems, even behavior patterns and how they use the tides to reduce energy output. There are many diagrams to aid in understanding and the book is written in language that is clear enough for students or anyone interested in marine life. The final chapter sounds a warning concerning over-fishing and fish farming. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
