Expanding the coverage of its preceding volume (2004), this new book considers how elasmobranch fishes - the sharks, skates, rays, and chimaeras - successfully survive in the wide range of habitats in which they live. It examines the particular suitability of integrated sensory systems and the resultant perception of their surroundings. This resource also discusses the stresses and behaviors that prevent elasmobranchs from inhabiting virtually all aquatic realms, from marine and freshwater habitats, to tropical and Arctic waters. The book includes a DVD of supporting figures, single-nerve cell traces, and streaming video of behaviors.
