Summary

This core text for ichthyology courses examines two major themes; adaptation and diversity. This new book covers basic fish anatomy, physiology, and phylogeny as well as offering insights into the adaptive significance of anatomical, physiological, ecological, or behavioral traits while emphasizing how these traits affect an individual's probability of survival and reproduction. The authors include numerous lists of species that display particular traits which reflect the parallel evolution among different lineages exposed to similar selection pressures.
