Reviews

The range and detail of information in this book will make it a valued library addition to students of anatomy and physiology as well as those specializing in ichthyology.

Sharks, Skates, and Rays is an important contribution to the literature on elasmobranch fishes. It successfully presents current reviews of many elasmobranch organ systems, and its equal treatment of batoids and sharks will be of great interest and value to all biologists in the field.
