Produktbeschreibung
The Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni, is afascinating species that possesses a series of remarkablebiological characteristics making it unique among coral reeffishes. It has been the focus of studies in reproduction, ecology,population genetics and evolution. In addition, since itsrediscovery in the late 1990s, it has become tremendously popularin the international ornamental fish trade, and indiscriminatecollecting has led to its inclusion in the 2007 IUCN Red List as anendangered species. This book is divided into three main parts: a generalintroduction to the fish, including a historical synopsis with anoverview of the Banggai Archipelago; a comprehensive treatment ofthe species' natural history (distribution, morphology,reproduction, embryology, ecology, genetics, systematics andevolution); an account of the conservation of the species,including descriptions of its fishery, attempts to protect it underCITES, and introduction programmes. The book also includes anappendix offering information on captive breeding, juvenilemortality reduction, and common diseases. This book is a unique resource for ichthyology students andresearchers working on fish biology, ecology and conservation, andfor marine ornamental fish hobbyists and aquariumprofessionals. Visit www.wiley.com/go/vagelli/cardinalfish toaccess the figures and tables from the book.

Autorenporträt
Dr Alejandro A. Vagelli is the Director of Science and Conservation at the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences, and as adjunct professor teaches Marine Biology, Ichthyology, and Marine Conservation at Rutgers University. He is the world's leading authority on the Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni , and was one of the first people to breed the species successfully in captivity. He has published numerous scientific articles on its biology, ecology, and conservation, and his fieldwork in Indonesia led to the inclusion of the species in the IUCN Red List.
