By Sara Ostlund-Nilsson, Ian Mayer, Felicity Anne Huntingford

Highlighting the turning out to be value of the sticklebacks as a version species in rising fields reminiscent of molecular genetics, genomics, and environmental toxicology, Biology of the Three-Spined Stickleback examines information from researchers who use experiences of the stickleback to deal with a variety of organic concerns. This cutting-edge quantity is the 1st entire overview of the organic examine in this very important fish in additional than a decade. The ebook offers present wisdom at the geographic and genetic version of the ever-present three-spined stickleback and explores the potential of any subdivision inside of presently well-known stickleback species. It presents a precis of significant new molecular instruments on hand, and the way those instruments can be utilized to review the genetic structure and molecular foundation of evolutionary swap in several stickleback populations around the globe. The e-book additionally lays out their body structure, old components, geographic distribution, and describes the beneficial properties in their biology that appear to advertise speedy speciation. It covers reproductive habit in chronological order, and the mechanisms and choice pressures in the back of the actions that sticklebacks practice through the diversified stages of the breeding season. jam-packed with state-of-the-art info, the booklet discusses the umwelt of the three-spine stickleback, with specific connection with how that global interacts with and shapes intraspecific verbal exchange in the course of the breeding season. It covers advancements in stickleback reproductive body structure from 1991 onward and summarizes stories played — typically in the fields of behavioral ecology and body structure — on the various less-studied stickleback species. The ebook touches at the biology, particularly the behavioral ecology, of the 15-spined stickleback. Emphasizing the significance of the sticklebacks to quite a few disciplines, this booklet offers details that's either vast and authoritative.
