Current Issues in Environmental and Fish Biology

Shelley Bhattacharya (Editor) Saumen Kumar Maitra (Editor)

This title includes original and authentic reports on various aspects of Environmental and Fish Biology discussed at a Seminar of the same name held in 2002 in Department of Zoology, Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan, India. The aim of this publication is to provide comprehensive, integrated reviews giving sound, critical, and provocative ideas of selective presentations in the seminar covering diverse areas of environmental and fish biology, from molecular to organismic levels. The topics included in this treatise are the testimony of significant growth and development that took place inphysiology, endocrinology, cell and molecular biology, ecology, toxicology, andrecent years. Likewise, the authors of these articles are the scientists who were responsible for many of these advances. Obviously, scientists engaged in research in the areas of environmental and fish biology will find this book of particular value. But the topics covered will also attract scientists and graduate students in animal  reproductive biology.

She is a brilliant product of Calcutta University with an illustrative academic and research career. Her unstinted efforts in research and teaching in India and abroad, especially in Germany (as DAAD Fellow) and UK (as Association of Commonwealth Universities Development Fellow), for more than three decades has enriched the current understanding of the mechanism of action of heavy metals at sub-cellular levels in various animal models. She is a Fellow of academic bodies (FNASc and FWBAST) and has to her credit a patent and more than hundred original scientific publications. With the financial assistance of various agencies like GtZ (Germany), UGC, CSIR, DST, ICAR, and DBT, she is leading a strong group of researchers who have enrolled for Ph.D. degree under her guidance, and many others are pursuing exciting research career both within and outside the country.
