Praise for the third edition:
"The new edition of The Physiology of Fishes seems likely to continue the trend of the two previous editions that have each been regarded at the time as the best single reference text for fish physiology .... The multi-author approach of The Physiology of Fishes works well in providing detailed reviews with a high level of insight. ... Overall, The Physiology of Fishes provides a series of stimulating and valuable reviews that emphasize future directions for research."
—Anne Brown, University of Exeter & Aquatonics Ltd, Journal of Fish Biology, March 2007, 70
"With this third edition, David Evans (now with coeditor James Claiborne) has improved on his highly successful Fish Physiology volume.… Most of the chapters are written by one or two of the leading researchers in the field …. All of the chapters have large and up-to-date bibliographies that will be a starting point for further research…. it will be ideal for graduate students who have already mastered the concepts and language of comparative physiology. For fish biologists whose days of coursework are over, it will be a valuable resource and reference."
—Stephen D McCormick, Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 82, No. 2, June 2007
Praise for the second edition:
"The high quality of the chapters has been maintained. Lists of reference are extensive and up to date. This book continues to be the best single-volume, general reference to fish physiology. It is a worthwhile investment."
—Malcolm S. Gordon, University of California, Los Angeles, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, December 1998
David H. Evans, PhD, is a professor emeritus of biology at the University of Florida (UF) and adjunct professor at the Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratory (MDIBL).

Dr. Evans has presented over 20 invitational lectures at international meetings and has published more than 130 papers and book chapters.
James B. Claiborne, PhD, is a professor emeritus of biology at Georgia Southern University. He received his BS from Florida State University in 1977 and his PhD from the University of Miami (under the direction of Dr. David Evans) in 1981. He has published more than 100 refereed papers, short communications, book chapters, and edited volumes.
Suzanne Currie, PhD, is a professor of biology and the Harold Crabtree Chair in Aquatic Animal Physiology at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. She received her BSc (honors) in biology from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and then went on to earn an MSc and PhD in biology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Dr. Currie’s research is focused on the strategies aquatic animals use to cope with environmental stress.
