About this book
The editor is to be praised for the great job of integrating many contributions into a very useful publication. As with the first edition, this volume primarily focuses on 3 broad sections of elasmobranch research: phylogeny and zoogeography; form, function, and physiology; and ecology and life history. Within each section, there are several chapters focusing on a specific field of research, each written by a team of experts in that field.
While the language of some chapters may be a bit technical for some non-scientist readers, this book and the others in the series are an invaluable guide to shark science.
Biology of Sharks and Their Relatives
This book is worth getting for the epic reference list alone. Systematics, behavior, physiology, and ecology of cartilaginous fish are thoroughly reviewed here. The book's contributors also address topics such as evolutionary history, genetics, anatomy, and histology to the extent that they provide insight into the main topic areas. The bulk of information relates to sharks, with somewhat less material presented on the batoids skates and rays and much less on the chimaera deepwater cartilaginous fish.
This is not a case of selective editing; the relative amounts of information reflect the number of studies that have been conducted on each of these groups. However, the book contains noteworthy, novel contributions for all three taxonomic groups. The figures and tables are consistent in appearance throughout the text. The chapter narratives are well written and lucid, while the associated citations are current and extensive. This work should claim the role of its predecessor in serving as a fundamental resource for researchers and students of the cartilaginous fishes, as well as marine biologists of all disciplines.
Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
