Biology of the Three-Spined Stickleback (Marine Biology) by Sara Ostlund-Nilsson, Ian Mayer, Felicity Anne Huntingford

By Sara Ostlund-Nilsson, Ian Mayer, Felicity Anne Huntingford

Highlighting the growing to be value of the sticklebacks as a version species in rising fields comparable to molecular genetics, genomics, and environmental toxicology, Biology of the Three-Spined Stickleback examines info from researchers who use reports of the stickleback to deal with quite a lot of organic concerns. This cutting-edge quantity is the 1st entire evaluation of the organic learn in this vital fish in additional than a decade. The booklet offers present wisdom at the geographic and genetic version of the ever-present three-spined stickleback and explores the potential for any subdivision inside presently well-known stickleback species. It offers a precis of vital new molecular instruments to be had, and the way those instruments can be utilized to check the genetic structure and molecular foundation of evolutionary swap in several stickleback populations around the globe. The e-book additionally lays out their body structure, old elements, geographic distribution, and describes the good points in their biology that appear to advertise quick speciation. It covers reproductive habit in chronological order, and the mechanisms and choice pressures at the back of the actions that sticklebacks practice through the diverse stages of the breeding season. filled with state-of-the-art information, the booklet discusses the umwelt of the three-spine stickleback, with specific connection with how that global interacts with and shapes intraspecific verbal exchange throughout the breeding season. It covers advancements in stickleback reproductive body structure from 1991 onward and summarizes reports played — normally in the fields of behavioral ecology and body structure — on the various less-studied stickleback species. The ebook touches at the biology, specifically the behavioral ecology, of the 15-spined stickleback. Emphasizing the significance of the sticklebacks to various disciplines, this publication offers details that's either large and authoritative.
