Behavior of Marine Animals: Current Perspectives in Research by Eugene L. Nakamura (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla

By Eugene L. Nakamura (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

What were introduced jointly in those volumes are works symbolize­ ing various glossy quantitative reviews on a choose crew of marine organisms. the various species studied right here signify easy organic ex­ perimental subjects-in a few circumstances, marine models of the white rat and pigeon-that are getting used for a variety of reviews. different species studied have been nearly unknown as experimental animals. The authors have studied their animals in significant intensity, frequently in either the sector and the laboratory. it's this move reference among genuine existence and the unreal yet managed stipulations of the laboratory which provides us the required realizing, and eventually the ability, for bettering our swiftly deteriorating setting, a needs to for man's survival, upkeep, and development of the standard of residing criteria. an immediate outgrowth of a AAAS symposium entitled "Recent Advances within the habit of Marine Organisms" held in December 1966, those vol­ umes contain an inexpensive stability among assessment and unique unpublished learn. Of the various individuals who've made those volumes attainable, we want to specifically thank Nancy Fish, Lois Wino, Mabel Trafford, and Deborah Brennan. The latter complete many of the ultimate editorial paintings. The group of workers of Plenum Press have been cooperative in all features of our rela­ tionship. in simple terms the 2 editors are liable for defects within the volumes. We think the papers awarded are major and may be of value to participants of the clinical community.

Suckling (1967). Oxygen consumption in muscles of skipjack and bigeye tunas has been investigated by Gordon (1968). Many skipjack tuna, after a few days in confinement, develop a condition we have termed "puffy snout" (Fig. 17). Tissues of the snout begin to swell and become edematous. The swelling spreads posteriorly until the fish is unable to close its jaws and the tissues around the eyes swell to give the appearance of sunken eyes. If left in this condition, the fish dies. Puffy snout is believed to result from stress due to confinement in small tanks or pools.
