The elasmobranch fishes comprise the dwelling sharks, skates and rays which are very important contributors of approximately all marine ecosystems. Their huge measurement, secretive habit, and wide-ranging behavior lead them to tricky to monitor within the box or to take care of in captivity. for that reason, little is understood approximately their average habit and the way it truly is mediated by means of their sensory structures. This quantity is devoted to the medical contributions and reminiscence of Donald Nelson, a pioneer within the research of shark habit, sensory biology, and distant instrumentation. the 2 establishing papers overview Don Nelson's certain medical accomplishments and supply perception into his powerful bias in the direction of learn of animals within the box. those are by way of 14 clinical papers on elasmobranch habit, sensory biology, and present tracking applied sciences. The papers on elasmobranch sensory biology and behaviour deal with questions about listening to, the lateral line, electroreception, the mind, orientation habit, chemical irritants, feeding, and copy. The latter element of the amount provides papers on traditional tagging strategies, ultrasonic telemetry, physiological telemetry, distant tracking strategies, archival tagging and satellite tv for pc tagging. The reason of this quantity is to familiarize either new and tested scientists with the sensory biology and behaviour of sharks and rays, and to motivate extra behavioral examine on those animals of their ordinary surroundings.
