Conservation Physiology for the Anthropocene – A Systems Approach, Volume 39B in the Fish Physiology series, is a comprehensive synthesis related to the physiology of fish in the Anthropocene. This volume helps solve knowledge gaps by considering the many ways in which different physiological systems (e.g., sensory physiology, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, bioenergetics, water and ionic balance and homeostasis, locomotion/biomechanics, gene function) and physiological diversity are relevant to the management and conservation of fish and fisheries. Chapters in this release include Using physiology for recovering imperiled species – the Delta smelt, Conservation hatcheries – the Sturgeon story, Aquatic pollutants and stressors, and more.

Other sections discuss Fisheries interactions in a multi-stressor world, Environmental change in riverine systems - Amazon basin stressors, Environmental change in lakes and wetlands – East African basin stressors, Coral reef fish in a multi-stressor world, Polar fish in a multi-stressor world, Physiology informs fisheries restoration and habitat management, A physiological perspective on fish passage and entrainment, Invasive species control and management – the sea lamprey story, and On the conservation physiology of fishes for tomorrow.
