Advances in Fish and Wildlife Ecology and Biology Vol II is a compendium of original research papers written by scholars in these fields. Articles in the first section include those on Physiology, metabolism, fish food organisms, alimentary canal and on quality of water inhabited by fish. Papers on transgenic fish, sewage-fed fisheries and parasities of fish have also been included in this section. Ecological crisis of Lake Mansar (J & K) and studies of rotifers which are an important component of fish food also form a part of this section. In the second section on Wildlife, articles on trutles, wall lizard, barn owl, aquatic birds and gastropods have been included. Other papers on wildlife include a note on Guindy National Park (Madras), Impact of tourism on wildlife in Patnitop (J & K) and on a new species of digenetic trematode parasite found in frog. A paper on reprotechnology in wildlife conservation also finds a place in this section. The volume is dedicated to the memory of Late Professor S M Das an eminent Zoologist of the Indian subcontinent.
