     Raising Live Foods (Complete Herp Care)
Publisher: TFH Publications
Author(s): Michael R. Hellweg

Many of the most popular reptiles and amphibians?including snakes, monitors, geckos, anoles, chameleons, red-eared sliders, box turtles, and frogs?consume live foods in nature. In fact, when done correctly, a diet consisting of live foods can be beneficial for herps and economical for hobbyists. Raising Live Foods covers numerous common food species?including crickets, mealworms, earthworms, snails, shrimp, fruit flies, fish, mice, finches, and more?and explains which prey species are appropriate for which pet reptiles and amphibians. Step-by-step instructions guide the hobbyist through the entire process of culturing live foods, with thorough discussion of how and why to use live foods, what equipment is needed, and how to procure live foods. Trouble-shooting tips offer solutions to the times when live food cultures go bad, prey species escape, and other potential challenges.

     Culturing Live Foods: A Step-by-Step Guide for Culturing One's Own Food for the Home Aquarium
Publisher: TFH Publications
Author(s): Michael R. Hellweg

Culturing Live Foods is an essential guide for hobbyists who want to feed their aquatic pets a natural diet. It includes up-to- date, authoritative information on the best bacteria, worms, crustaceans, plants, shrimps, insects, and more to offer as nutritious foods for one's fishes, whether they are larvae, juveniles, or full-grown adults. It is also the first book to devote in-depth coverage to recently adopted live foods like rotifers, cyclops, Walter worms, blackworms, Dero worms, Halocardina and Neocardina shrimp, and Mysis shrimp.

This comprehensive guide covers the most popular live foods for home aquaria, reviews their benefits, and gives step-by-step instructions on how to culture and harvest them. And not only does Culturing Live Foods focus on freshwater cultures, but it also includes cultures for saltwater aquaria. Also, some cultures detailed in the book can be used not only by aquarium hobbyists but also by amphibian and reptile hobbyists.

This exclusive one-stop source of culturing information is a welcome innovation to obtaining information that once could only be found on the Internet and in outdated books.

     Monitoring and Control of Macrofouling Mollusks in Fresh Water Systems, Second Edition
Publisher: CRC Press
Author(s): Gerald L. Mackie, Renata Claudi

Upon its initial publication more than fifteen years ago, this book broke new ground with its comprehensive coverage of the biology and ecology, distribution and dispersal mechanisms, physiology, monitoring, negative and positive impacts, and control of aquatic invasive species of mussels, clams, and snails. Building on this foundation, the second edition of Monitoring and Control of Macrofouling Mollusks in Fresh Water Systems includes completely revised information on species such as the zebra mussel while also covering up-and-coming nuisance species such as the quagga mussel, Conrad?s false mussel, the Asian clam, and the fast-spreading golden mussel.

The Second Edition includes:

  • Ten new species of mussels and snails
  • International case studies on mussel fouling problems and how to cope with them
  • New control and monitoring techniques
  • Discussions of the latest threats and possible future scenarios

The book contains brief descriptions of the external and internal structures, examining only those features relevant to the monitoring and control of the invasive species. It discusses why the mollusks are pests, distinguishing nuisance species from native species, their habits and habitat, reproductive potential, and life cycles and population dynamics. The authors also explain how efficient dispersal mechanisms employed by the nuisance mollusks not only help them spread so rapidly to inland lakes and rivers across continents, but how they can invade virtually every part of a facility.

While many other resources contain segments of this information, none cover all areas and link them in a cohesive fashion. It is this approach that makes the understanding of potential impacts on ecosystems, industries and utilities, as well as the many human-made physical and chemical mitigants for controlling the mollusks supplied by this book so crucial for preserving the health of raw water supplies.

     A Handbook of Global Freshwater Invasive Species
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

Invasive non-native species are a major threat to global biodiversity. Often introduced accidentally through international travel or trade, they invade and colonize new habitats, often with devastating consequences for the local flora and fauna. Their environmental impacts can range from damage to resource production (e.g. agriculture and forestry) and infrastructure (e.g. buildings, road and water supply), to human health. They consequently can have major economic impacts. It is a priority to prevent their introduction and spread, as well as to control them. Freshwater ecosystems are particularly at risk from invasions and are landscape corridors that facilitate the spread of invasives.�

This book reviews the current state of knowledge of the most notable global invasive freshwater species or groups, based on their severity of economic impact, geographic distribution outside of their native range, extent of research, and recognition of the ecological severity of the impact of the species by the IUCN.�As well as some of the very well-known species, the book also covers some invasives that are emerging as serious threats. Examples covered include a range of aquatic and riparian plants, insects, molluscs, crustacea, fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals, as well as some major pathogens of aquatic organisms.�

The book also includes overview chapters synthesizing the ecological impact of invasive species in fresh water and summarizing practical implications for the management of rivers and other freshwater habitats.
