Simon Courtauld's beautifully written musings from "The Spectator" extolling the virtues of fish, poultry and feathered game are gathered into one elegant volume.

In Food for Thought Fish and Feather: A Culinary Tour of Britain's Seas and Skies, the author navigates sea and sky to provide illuminating culinary insights into seasonal produce; from pigeon to perch to grunting gurnards he enlightens us on which corners of the world, and their markets, you'll find the best-valued and best-flavoured morsels, and how to cook and eat them in style.

Discover some outstanding recipes and their origins such as 'Txangurro' - a crab dish from the Basque country, 'Bestilla' - Moroccan pigeon pie, Octopus boiled in metal drums in Galicia, northern Spain, not to mention Haddock 'Monte Carlos' - said to have been invented for those tired and jaded after gambling in the casinos. You will also find out how to tell a carpet-shell clam from a smooth venus (and how to make them jump onto the sand when you catch them), why a monkfish's tail is so highly prized by Venetians and when and where to look forward to the annual crayfish run.

Food for Thought Fish and Feather: A Culinary Tour of Britain's Seas and Skies highlights which beasts are under-appreciated (whiting, spider crab), over-priced (monkfish) and over-fished (cod). Balancing flavour and taste, health and ethics with equal panache, it is clear that foodies everywhere can learn a great deal from Simon Courtauld's hardworking taste buds and reap some tasty rewards.

RRP $711.99

It is difficult and laborious not only for the beginner but also for the advanced researchers to survey literature and to appreciate former studies properly. To enable both to do this, the book is compiled. Purpose of the book covers karyotypes, which have been reported since the latest book on fish karyotypes (Klinkhardt et al. 1995), and following points are informed. 1. synonym of the species is checked based on Eschmeyer (2009, Catalog of Fishes) and a current classification of higher taxa follows Nelson (2006, Fishes of the World). 2. When the current species names differ from those in original karyotype papers, both names are listed. 3. Genome size is added. According to Gregory (http: //www.genomesize.com/), genome sizes determined by different methods are differentiated. 4. As for the arm number, NF1 and NF2 are differentiated. M and SM are defined as two arm chromosomes in NF1, while M, SM, and ST are defined as two arm chromosomes in NF2. 5. Sex chromosomes, B chromosomes, and ploidy are checked. 6. The ancestral chromosome number (ACN), which is defined as diploid chromosome number of the latest common ancestor and inferred from Robertsonian transformation, is proposed. As the largest group of extant vertebrates, fishes offer an almost limitless number of striking examples of evolutionary adaptation to environmental and biotic selection pressure. The book is useful for verifying plausibility of phylogeny based on gene trees, for the study on relationships between karyotypes and biogeography, and for the study on relationships between karyotypes and biodiversity
