From the Back Cover:

The study of animal cognition has until recently been largelyconfined to birds and mammals; a historical bias which has led tothe belief that learning plays little or no part in the developmentof behavior in fishes and reptiles. Research in recent decades hasbegun to redress this misconception and it is now recognized thatfishes exhibit a rich array of sophisticated behavior withimpressive learning capabilities entirely comparable with those ofmammals and other terrestrial animals.

Building on the very well-received First Edition, and coveringall major areas of fish learning, all chapters in this brand newedition of Fish Cognition and Behavior have been revised andupdated by an internationally recognized team of contributingauthors, with the addition of three brand new chapters, coveringpersonality traits and behavior, lateralization of cognitivefunctions in fish, and cognition and welfare.

This Second Edition of Fish Cognition and Behavior isessential reading for all fish biologists and ethologists, andcontains much information of commercial importance for fisheriesmanagers and aquaculture personnel. Libraries in all universitiesand research establishments where biological sciences, aquacultureand fisheries are studied and taught will find this book anextremely important addition to their shelves.
