Fish Physiology Vol 16-Deep-Sea Fishes
[Fish Physiology Series - Vol 16]
by William S. Hoar (Editor), David J. Randall (Editor)
Publisher: Academic Press
The deep ocean is home to some of the most unusual of all fishes. Practically every organ system of these fishes is affected by the constraints imposed by the benthic pressure, the absence of light, and the relatively scarce supply of both food and mates. Clearly, these fishes are living "on the edge" and must metabolize, behave, and evolve accordingly. This book, with chapters by leading figures in deep-sea biology, is the first Fish Physiology volume devoted to these bizarre abyssal denizens. Fishery biologists, physiologists, and ichthyologists interested in an up-to-date review of deep-sea fish physiology, ecology, and evolution will need this important volume.
