Otoliths Of Common Australian Temperate Fish

RRP $24.99

The accurate identification of fish 'ear-bones', known as otoliths, is essential to determine the fish prey of marine and terrestrial predators. Fish otoliths are species-specific when combining size, shape and surface features, and can remain undigested for long periods. As a result, they can indicate which fish make up the diet of various predators, including cephalopod, seabird, marine mammal and fish species. Such studies are crucial for understanding marine ecosystems, and trophodynamics in particular. Increasingly, these methods are being used to understand the diet of some terrestrial predators, also extending to that of humans in archaelogical studies.

Otoliths of Common Australian Temperate Fish offers users a verified reference collection to assist in the accurate identification of species and size of fish using otoliths. It covers 141 fish species from a broad geographic range of the Australian temperate region and includes commercial and non-commercial fish species. A standardised written description of the otolith structure, size and surface features is provided for each species. Included are brief distribution and ecology notes, and regression for both otolith and fish lengths, together with high-quality SEM photographs of the otolith described.

This guide will be an essential reference for marine scientists and marine mammal researchers; ornithologists, fisheries researchers and fish biologists studying age and growth or comparative anatomy; and archaeologists.

Dianne Furlani has worked in temperate marine science for 20+ years in the fields of taxonomy, biology and ecology, predominantly in SE Australian shelf and inshore waters, and predominantly working on finfish species and ecological work typically with links to trophodynamic studies.

A Checklist Of American Imprints 1846

RRP $318.99

The purpose of the work is to make an initial identification of monographs; state and local documents; pamphlets; broadsides; and other material published in America during the period from 1820-1875. The bibliography is based upon the work of the American Imprints Inventory of the Depression era WPA, but draws heavily upon more recently published national and state bibliographies. It incorporates the theses done at Catholic University, which continues the publication program of the Historical Records Survey. Arrangement is by author. The essential elements of description are given and, in most cases, location of several extant copies are provided. 1846 is the most recent volume in the series.
