Climate change and non-infectious fish disorders.

Book cover for Climate change and non-infectious fish disorders.


The current volume, entitled Climate Change and Non-infectious Fish Disorders (CCNFD) is the first of the two-volume set, and it focuses on the development, physiology and health of fish. CCNFD has 11 chapters organized into two parts. Chapters 1 and 2 (Part I) are mainly for aquatic biologists including colleagues who study non-infectious fish disorders and infectious fish diseases. These two chapters also set the stage for discussions in the remaining nine chapters. Chapter 1 presents an overview (both historical and current) on climate change while Chapter 2 is focused on abiotic changes in tropical marine and brackish ecosystems. Part II (Chapters 3-11) is on non-infectious disorders such as abnormal development, neoplasms, metabolism, feeding, the immune system, migration and overall health of fish. The principal audience for CCNFD includes research scientists in universities, aquatic biologists and fish health consultants in private or government laboratories. It is also useful to environmentalists and ecologists who monitor changes to the aquatic system. The book may be appropriate for the training of fish health specialists, and for graduate students and senior undergraduates who conduct field studies on fish and/or monitor changes to the aquatic environment.
