Introduction to Fish Bioacoustics.- Hearing and Acoustic Behavior (Basic and Applied).- Structures and Functions of the Auditory Nervous System of Fishes.- Evolution of Peripheral Mechanisms for the Enhancement of Sound Reception.- Bioacoustics and the Lateral Line of Fishes.- Orientation to Auditory and Lateral Line Stimuli.- Multipole Mechanisms for Directional Hearing in Fish.- Vocal-Acoustic Communication: From Neurons to Behavior.- Active and Passive Acoustics to Locate and Study Fish.
This new definitive volume on fish auditory systems will interest investigators in both basic research of fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and resource management. Topics cover structure, physiology, localization, and acoustic behavior as well as more applied topics such as using sound to detect and locate fish.
The study of how fish make and respond to sound has important implications for communication, physiology, behavior, and commercial techniques. This new definitive volume on fish auditory systems is written for both investigators in basic research on fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and resource management. The authors explore how fish detect and process signals and demonstrate how bioacoustics is used to understand and affect fish behavior. Topics include structure, physiology, localization, and acoustic behavior. The book also covers applied topics such as the use of sound to detect and locate fish.
