papers delivered at the workshop would be a good idea. This issue is the result. Firstly, Bals and Wagner investigated the sources of odorants that contribute to the sometimes spectacular alarm response of the sea lamprey ( Petromyzon marinus ). This system is likely to be quite different from the better

, unpublished results), the non-reproductive attractant has special promise to census and perhaps remove these otherwise difficult fish. Analogies may be made with the sea lamprey ( Petromyzon marinus ), an invasive fish in the Laurentian Great Lakes, whose pheromones are now being tested for control (Sorensen

An exception is the inte- grated sea lamprey ( Petromyson marinus ) management scheme in the Great Lakes of North America which is currently in its initial stages following re- cent identification

In crotaline snakes the tendency of P neurons to have larger R in and longer τ than those of M neurons is similar to that of P and M neurons in the sea lamprey (Martin and Wickelgren, 1971

Such 130 Yavno & Corkum thigmotactic behaviour is typical of many bottom-dwelling species (i.e., sea lamprey, crayfish) and is advantageous in avoiding predators (Alberstadt et al

The occurrence of this lamprey species in Polish waters is problematic. In the 19th Century it was found in several rivers during spawning migrations and on spawning grounds
